Enterprise Standard Industrial Classification Manual. 1974.
Executive Office of the President, Washington, DC. Statistical Policy Div.
This classification is presented to provide a standard for use with statistics about enterprises (i.e., companies, rather than their individual establishments) by kind of economic activity. The enterprise unit consists of all establishments under common direct or indirect ownership. It is defined to include all entities, including subsidiaries, where there is more than 50% ownership. The classification covers the entire field of economic activities: agriculture, forestry, and fishing; mining; construction; manufacturing; transportation and public utilities; wholesale trade, retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; services; and public administration. This classification is a revision of the 1968 Enterprise Standard Industrial Classification (ESIC). Most changes reflect the attempt to conform with the latest revision of the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) (1972). (A table showing the changes is presented in the appendix.) The structure of the enterprise classification makes it possible to tabulate, analyze, and publish enterprise data on a division, two-digit, three-digit, or four-digit basis. Entries appear by field and contain the ESIC code number, the enterprise title, and the SIC code number. (CSS)
