SIC or Standard Industrial Classification code is a numerical classification system used to group/classify similar companies into industries for the purposes of collecting, analyzing, and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy.


  • Use the resources listed on the SIC & NAICS Codes library research guide to find the SIC code for your industry or company.
  • Company profiles indicate the primary and secondary SIC codes for a company. Look at the resources listed on the Company profiles & Directories section of the Company Research Guide to find a company profile.
