NAICS North American Industry Classification System

NOTE: Manufacturing companies with fewer than 50 employees and nonmanufacturing companies with fewer than 15 employees were sampled separately without regard to industry classification to minimize year-to-year variation in survey estimates. However, estimates for companies in these groups are included with their respective NAICS classification for this table.
