How to Decompress ZIP Files

Note: Previous version of the .zip files, published on September 8, 2022, contained incorrectly aggregated detailed industries data for summary sector 284 (State and local general government), which included only detailed industry sectors 186 and 187. The correct aggregation should have included detailed industries 186-188. The industry sectoring plan contained outdated detailed industry titles for summary sector 283 (State and local government) in the “Industry Commodity Sectors” tab and incorrect mapping for NAICS 491 (Postal service) in the “Stubs” tab. The latest files, published on October 21, 2022, includes all of these corrections.
