Research with NAICS/SIC Codes: Industry codes applied

Learn to find research using NAICS/SIC codes

Linking the research to businesses

One of the aims of this guide is to connect businesses with original research that could affect them. In addition, the Delta Regional Authority has an interest in boosting area businesses by connecting them with research in order to alleviate problems in the Delta such as poverty, obesity, and unemployment.

Research examples

Below are some examples of original, scholarly research articles linked to their respective NAICS codes. This research could in turn be utilized by businesses to potentially improve or add something new to their operations.
