The highest levels of aggregation in the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) are NAICS Sectors. The QCEW aggregates data to three higher levels in order to provide comparability to other programs that have less detailed data. These levels are the SuperSector level, the twelve of which represent combinations of from one to four NAICS Sectors, the Domain level. Two of which represent combinations of three and nine Supersectors, the overall all industry total. While these aggregates do not have official NAICS codes, the QCEW program assigns them codes to provide ready reference. The codes and their corresponding titles are shown in the QCEW High-Level Industry Titles table below. The NAICS codes that make up each SuperSector are shown in the second table below titled QCEW High-Level Industry Crosswalk Table.
This table shows the codes and titles for the high-level industries used with in the QCEW program. This table is available as an Excel workbook (.xlsx), a comma separated values file (.csv), and as a flat, text file (.txt). Click the links below to download.
