The Product Lines reports provide estimates of the sales of product lines in the largest retail industries.

These estimates are produced by a proprietary economic model that is based on a number of sources and factors:

-The size and characteristics of the largest U.S. industries (based on the U.S. Bureau of the Census statistics, inflation rates and industry trends).
-The sales of product lines by industry. Main category and sub category product lines weights are a proportion of the U.S. total product lines sales.
-U.S. States statistics are based on industry breakdown and product lines weights are applied by size of firm.

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.

Product lines codes are available through the U.S. Bureau of the Census.
