Comparability between SIC and NAICS   Bridge symbols indicate the comparability of SIC and NAICS categories, and link to detail in the Bridge Between NAICS and SIC.
(Bridge complete.) Comparable SIC derivable from NAICS data.
(Drawbridge slightly open.) Almost comparable Sales or receipts from NAICS are within 3% of SIC sales or receipts.
(Drawbridge open.) Not comparable SIC sales or receipts cannot be estimated within 3% from NAICS data.
