Classification System is a classification system used for organizing economic
data and provides a common standard framework for the collection of economic
and financial data for all three countries. The revised Canadian manual for the
North American Industry Classification System, NAICS Canada 2007, is
used for organizing economic data by industry, and is used by Canada, Mexico
and the United States.
The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) 2007 supersedes NAICS 2002. NAICS is revised on a five-year cycle in order to ensure that the classification continues to reflect the rapidly changing structure of the economy. NAICS 2007 groups economic activity into 20 sectors and 928 Canadian industries.
In this revision, the Information and Cultural Industries sector has been further updated to reflect rapid changes occurring in this area. These have led to the merger of a number of Internet-related industries. The revision also reflects the outcome of a convergence project among North American, European and United Nations statistical agencies. The objective of the project was to achieve greater comparability between NAICS, the International Standard Industrial Classification and the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community. This has led to the redefinition of a number of the classes within each of the three classifications.
NAICS was jointly developed by three agencies: the Instituto Nacional de Estadística, Geografía e Informática of Mexico; the United States Office of Management and Budget; and Statistics Canada. The goal was to provide a consistent framework for the collection, analysis and dissemination of industrial statistics used by government policy analysts, academics and researchers, the business community and the public.
This revision makes industrial statistics produced in the three countries even more comparable. The revision is scheduled to go into effect for the reference year 2007 in Canada and the United States, and for 2009 in Mexico. NAICS was developed to provide a consistent framework for the collection, analysis and dissemination of industrial statistics used by government policy analysts, academics and researchers, the business community and the public.
