Update to 2017 North American Industry Classification System on March 12, 2018

With the release of January 2018 data on March 12, 2018, the Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey will revise the basis for industry classification from the 2012 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) to NAICS 2017 for all States and Metropolitan Statistical Areas. The conversion to NAICS 2017 will result in minor revisions reflecting content and coding changes within the retail trade and information sectors. Several industry titles and descriptions also will be updated. Details of new, discontinued, and collapsed industries as a result of the NAICS 2017 update, as well as changes due to the annual benchmarking process, will be available on March 12, 2018.
