The NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) is the standard used by both Canadian and U.S. statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing and publishing statistical data related to the North American economy.
NAICS codes vary from 3-digits to 6-digits in length, and are assigned to industries. They form a numerical hierarchy for organizational purposes.

|4452||Specialty Food Store|
