|This classification system
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) 2012 supersedes NAICS 2007. NAICS is revised on a five-year cycle
in order to ensure that the classification continues to reflect the changing
structure of the economy. NAICS 2012 groups economic activity into 20 sectors
and 922 Canadian industries.
The NAICS changes for 2012 were made to account for the changing economies of the three North American countries. They represent a minor revision and all occur at the lower levels of the classification.
Various kinds of changes are brought into NAICS for 2012. Among the most notable are changes relating to outsourcing manufacturing production, video game publishers and developers, book publishing exclusive agents, and crafts.
NAICS was jointly developed by three agencies: the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía 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.
Please note: Statistics Canada will not be updating the Industry Classification Coding System (ICCS) to support coding to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Canada 2012. The ICCS is a tool to help users code business units at the lowest level of a classification. The last ICCS CD-ROM (version 1.4) was released in July 2008 and supports coding to NAICS 2007, 2002 and 1997 and to the 1980 Standard Industry Classification Establishments. Since the Agency's surveys and statistical programs will not be implementing NAICS 2012 until reference year 2013, NAICS 2007 will still be in use, and the ICCS version 1.4 will have an extended "shelf life" until reference year 2013.
