2007 Economic Census
Revised Industry Classification System
The 2007 Economic Census will publish data primarily on the basis of the
2007 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
Changes between 2002 NAICS and 2007 NAICS are relatively minor, but do affect totals of sectors 52, 53, 54 and 56. Nearly all industries are comparable from 2002 to 2007 NAICS classifications. Year-to-year comparisons should be easy to make.
See notes on
Selected data will be published according to the 2002 NAICS to allow precise comparisons between 2002 and 2007 data in the following reports:
Advance Report - includes preliminary data for broad NAICS categories. Its data will be replaced by subsequent reports.
Bridge Between 2007 NAICS and 2002 NAICS - shows the relationships between 2007 NAICS and 2002 NAICS categories in detail and where they have changed.
Comparative Statistics - shows U.S. and State totals classified by 2002 NAICS for both 2002 and 2007.
