IBISWorld’s offer to California’s community colleges includes the following four products:
1) Basic Subscription
IBISWorld’s core offering includes comprehensive yet easy to digest reports on each of the 700 NAICS industries, with up-to-date content on every major American industry. Each report is 30 to 40 pages and contains key statistics and deep analysis on market characteristics, operating conditions, current and historical performance, major industry players and more.
2) Specialized Industry Reports & State Reports
IBISWorld’s NAICS-based Industry Research Report collection is the foundation of their report library, but sometimes the NAICS categories can be too broad when dealing with small or emerging industries. For this reason, IBISWorld frequently produce new reports on specialized industries to help you find the information you need. Their State Industry Reports collection complements their core NAICS industry collection with localized data and analysis across many industries and states. This collection addresses the needs of clients looking for industry data, analysis and forecasts at a more local level.
3) Business Environment Profiles & iExpert Summaries
IBISWorld’s Business Environment Profiles analyze the wider world in which businesses operate. In each of the more than 200 reports, we provide concise insights on key factors, such as consumer behavior, commodity prices, financial markets and much more. iExpert Summaries condense the integral elements from our industry reports into bite-sized paragraphs, graphics and tables, highlighting the key issues with a Q&A section. There is an iExpert Summary for each of the 700 NAICS industries. These reports complement their core NAICS industry collection and allow you to quickly gain key knowledge and insight about an industry with minimal preparation time.
4) Country Specific Reports
IbisWorld also offers industry reports for Canada, China, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
