An important first step of business research is to identify & use the industry's code.
So, what is an industry code? A Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) was first introduced into the UK in 1948 for use in classifying business establishments and other statistical units by the type of economic activity in which they are engaged. In the United States the SIC code is being supplanted by the six-digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS code)
