Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages

NAICS Congruencies

BLS publishes NAICS industry data under the principle that as long as there is additional detail to be gained by publishing the next lower level, it will do so. This principle of congruent data means that the BLS will publish all data to the 6-digit industry level if there are two or more 6-digit industries. If there is only one, then the BLS only publishes the 5-digit NAICS industry level. Likewise, if there is only one 6-digit industry and one 5-digit NAICS industry under a 4-digit industry group, the BLS will only publish the 4-digit industry group. At this time, there are seven 4-digit industry groups that roll up to the 3-digit subsector level, 68 5-digit NAICS industries that roll up to the 4-digit industry group level, and 415 6-digit industries that roll up to the 5-digit NAICS industry level.

This table lists congruent industries (industries that are identical at two or more levels in the NAICS 2002 structure) by their highest level equivalent. This table is also available as an zipped excel spreadsheet (ZIP, 28 kb). A file compression utility is needed to unzip this. For help, see How to View ZIP Files.
