Use NAICS and SIC Codes

Every industry is assigned a four-digit SIC code. All companies in the same industry are assigned the same code. A company may have more than one SIC code if they operate within different segments of an industry, but usually only one or two are considered the primary SIC codes. Many of our business databases, such as Business & Company Resource Center, will list the codes for a particular company or industry.

Use Compustat, CRSP, WRDS, and FactSet

Compustat provides accounting information for US firms. Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP) provides access to market data for US firms. Both are accessed through the Wharton Research Data Service (WRDS). WRDS includes financial datasets such as company accounting information, stock price information, patent information, operational business information and more for firms and in the US and around the world. Fairfield University subscribes to these services through the Dolan School of Business and provides access to them for students and faculty of the university.
