Introduction to Plunkett Industry Analytics Reports

The purpose of these analytical reports is to provide estimates of vital data, within the United States, on a per-industry basis.

  3. Historical industry data going back several years for key figures including revenues, enterprises and sales per employee.

The primary sources are as follows:

  • Plunkett Research database of company fundamentals on over 30,000 leading corporations

  • Plunkett Research database of industry statistics

  • Industry associations and professional societies

  • Forecasts, Primary Research and Secondary Research by the Plunkett Research staff

  • U.S. Government Agency Databases—multiple sources, including the IRS, the bureau of the Census and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

While many other research firms mine U.S. government data in order to publish industry-specific information, we believe that such efforts produce limited and often inaccurate results. Such data is most useful and accurate when it is scrubbed and standardized, and then used in conjunction with all available related data.

Plunkett Research has unique capabilities for creating industry information, due to the industry databases and research that Plunkett Research has been conducting for more than 20 years. Our access to hundreds of industry tables from our own databases, along with our databases of public and private company information, industry trends analysis and other resources, have been utilized fully in preparing this report.
