Foreword

The National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI,
by its Spanish acronym) has driven the first official standard of
the National System of Statistical and Geographical Information
(SNIEG, by its acronym in Spanish) that establishes the North
American Industry Classification System (SCIAN, by its Spanish
acronym) as the mandatory classification system for State Units
that generate economic statistics. This agreement was published
on July 10th, 2009 in the Official Journal of the Federation (DOF,
by its acronym in Spanish).

INEGI, as coordinator of the National System of Statistical
and Geographical Information, convenes diverse State Units
and private sector institutions to carry out the implementation
of SCIAN, providing relevant assistance during and after its

adoption. Therefore the present methodological synthesis is
offered as a help tool for current and potential users that require
to make quick consultations that allow them to know and clarify
in brief the framework for the development of SCIAN, the
considerations for setting it up, the process and reflections for
its revision, and even the interpretation that must be given to
the terminology used, that may result fairly technical for general
users.

A regular update of the document has been planned in order
to improve the content of this synthesis; therefore the Institute
will appreciate comments and suggestions that contribute to this
end, both from internal users and other institutions.

traditional considerations or pressure from industrial chambers. Mexico Methodological synthesis SCIAN 2013. Several years of discussions in the statistical agencies of Canada and the United States revealed the need for the development of an economic classification erected on a single principle. the United States and Mexico— implied to confront. the United States Office of Management and Budget. North American Industry Classification System. These changes require constant revision of the classification systems of economic activities to keep them updated. thus giving birth to the North American Industry Classification System (SCIAN). as it had happened with the classifications formerly used by those countries. preventing the development of the classification as a result of empirical adjustments. Since 1994. the United States and Mexico strove to meet the statistical needs of NAFTA. With this project. the three countries have coordinated their efforts for the development and updating of SCIAN through their respective statistical agencies: Statistics Canada. this need could only be satisfied by unifying their respective data presentation systems. 2014. Canada. the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) —by Canada. and INEGI of Mexico. The transition from the predominance of goods-producing sectors to the increasing contribution of service-producing sectors is one of the vertiginous changes in economic systems INEGI. In the case of the trading bloc formed by North American countries. particularly over the last few years. the need for countries in this trading zone to have comparable economic statistics. among other things. and also to fulfill the need of counting with updated national classifications that efficiently replaced their former classifications.Background The formation of economic blocs has given a new turn and a different dynamic to the economy. in recent decades. mainly achieved by homogenizing their classification systems of economic activities. In 1994 the three North American countries started a joint project to develop a new classification of economic activities to be used for the production of all their economic statistics. A single principle IX .

Thus. could be utilized by all users and served to answer the possible queries and complaints systematically and logically. which will be addressed in further detail because it constitutes the backbone of the entire classification. North American Industry Classification System. and at the same time respectful of each country’s idiosyncrasy. Hence the proposal of creating a classification of economic activities not only rigorously compatible among the countries. the three countries started the development of the first regional classification of economic activities constructed within a single conceptual framework. each country would have defended its own traditional form of grouping or classifying economic activities during the development of the classification system. therefore helping to avoid controversy and interpretation mistakes.
