IBISWorld Industry Risk Ratings Now Available

This collection of 700+ Risk Ratings Reports (which accompany each NAICS report) analyzes the opportunities and threats affecting an industry in the next 6-18 months.  In conjunction with the Risk Management Association, IBISWorld came up with a risk score for each industry, which determines the difficulty of operating in that industry.

A downloadable spreadsheet of the Risk Scores is available from the main IBISWorld page. Look for the 'US Risk Scores Listing' link.

These reports are available in IBISWorld on the Library's A-Z Database page.
