Guide to the
1997 Economic Census
The Advance report provides a preliminary look at data for the whole economy at the beginning of the publication program.
While the NAICS table is limited to 1997 data, the SIC table shows figures for both 1992 and 1997, making possible the calculation of percent change in sales or employment over the 5-year period. The SIC-based data in the Advance report will be superseded with the publication of Comparative Statistics.
