NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) codes play an important role in industry research. NAICS classifies business establishments by type of economic activity. Managed by OMB, it is used by all Federal statistical agencies. After the program, you will know the history of NAICS, how it is used by Government agencies, how to request a new NAICS code, and the major changes that are coming with the release of the 2022 Economic Census.
