    Difference between NAICS and SIC Codes

    I tried to google this topic, read many links but still could not understand the difference between NAICS and SIC codes. Can someone make me understand.

    Further can someone provide a an hierarchical list of these codes?

    Which one of them is currently used in the USA?

    Thanks in advance

    Best Regards

    Try here: https://www.naics.com/what-is-the-di...and-sic-codes/

    Links to the hierarchies at the bottom, I believe:

    https://www.naics.com/business-lists...s-by-sic-code/

    https://www.naics.com/business-lists...#countsByNAICS

    Click on the links within to go further into the hierarchy.
