Data is now available for the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam. Data for the other islands are forthcoming.

The data is presented using the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code, which is used to classify business establishments.

The NAICS search page provides more information about NAICS and can be used to look up NAICS codes for specific industries.
