Standard & Poor's Industry Surveys Now Available Online

Standard & Poor's Industry Surveys is a leading source of professional industry analysis used by investment advisors, corporations, consulting firms, government agencies, and law offices. Over 50 of the largest North American and global industries are covered by the reports available in the database, along with a larger number of sub-industry reviews.

Each report is authored by a Standard & Poor's industry research analyst and includes the following sections:
  • Current Environment
  • Industry Trends
  • How the Industry Operates
  • Key Industry Ratios and Statistics
  • How to Analyze a Company
  • Glossary of Industry Terms
  • Additional Industry Information References
  • Comparative Company Financial Analysis
The database archive currently extends to 2001, although the reports are periodically updated and the majority have been updated this year.

A four-page guide (in PDF format) to using the database for industry analysis is also available online.
