Implementing NAICS 2002 at the Census Bureau
The first glimpse of data based on NAICS 2002 will be published in early 2004 in the 2002 Economic Census: Advance report. That report will provide information on employment, payroll, receipts, and number of establishments using both NAICS 2002 and NAICS 1997 at the sector and subsector (2- and 3-digit NAICS) levels.
Beginning in early 2004, industry and geographic data will be published
on a NAICS 2002 basis only. These reports will provide NAICS 2002 data
down to the six-digit U.S. industry detail level. The Comparative
Statistics report, scheduled for released in the second quarter of
2005, will show information on 1997 and 2002 employment, payroll, receipts,
and number of establishments on a NAICS 1997 basis. The Bridge Between
NAICS 2002 and NAICS 1997, to be issued in the second quarter of
2005, will include data on a six-digit NAICS 2002 by six-digit NAICS 1997
basis, and vice versa. The tables in this report will provide the link
needed to compare data between the two versions of NAICS, much as the
1997 Economic Census Bridge Between NAICS and SIC serves as the
basis for evaluating the comparability of those systems.
Preparations are underway for implementing NAICS 2002 in the current
economic programs of the Census Bureau. A detailed time schedule has been
developed for this implementation:

1997 in the Current Services Program.
