The fiscal year is drawing to a close and we have some last-minute purchases coming in. First up: ReferenceUSA.
CC's subscription to ReferenceUSA comprises a suite of databases: US Businesses, Canadian Businesses, Canadian White Pages, New Businesses, US Consumers/Lifestyles, and Data Visulatization. You can search for businesses by NAIC or SIC code, geographical location, executive name, business size, credit rating and more. US Consumers/Lifestyles allows you to search for consumers by interest, household value, household income, and geographical location. Results can be viewed in charts and as a heat map. ReferenceUSA will be useful for research in economics & business, sociology, and other areas where demographics come into play.
Here's an example of a Custom Search with SIC code 208201 (Brewer Mfr), with employees of 1-49. Click on image for larger view. This is just a screen grab; with the database you can zoom in and out and alter your searches for more refined results.
