These industry reports (and U.S. Industry & Market Outlook) provide estimates of the size and characteristics of the largest industries in United States. These estimates are produced by a proprietary economic model that is based on a number of sources and factors:
1. The size and characteristics of the largest U.S. industries (based on the U.S. Bureau of the Census publications, such as the U.S. Census 2000, U.S. Statistical Abstract, and County Business Patterns).
2. The forecast estimates for establishments and employment (regression analysis on historical trends from Census statistics listed above).
3. The forecast estimates for industry sales based on Census statistics (as well as a secondary research from sources such as Dunn & Bradstreet, Hoovers, the Economist, trade association research, and private research studies), historical industry sales trends and inflation rates. We use a number of sources to provide a “consensus” estimate.
4. NAICS codes (North American Classification System codes) are used in each industry definition in order to aid report users in clarifying and standardizing the definitions of each industry.
