      Hi everyone!

      Does anyone know if it’s possible to get the industry (or sector) of an entity?

      Any help is really appreciated!

      Hi Juan, within the SEC Financial Statement Data Sets quarterly releases ( https://www.sec.gov/dera/data/financial-statement-data-sets.html), there is a text file named “sub”. Within it, each entity is given an sic code. You can use that sic code to match with the SEC provided sic list (https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/siccodes.htm). Since the sic codes have 4 digits, you can further classify them by Division, Major Group, Industry Group and Industry by using the structure at this website https://siccode.com/

      Hi Juan – in addition to the resources Tim provided, you can get the SIC code when you include report.sic-code in the fields you return for /fact and /report queries using the XBRL API. The attribute is searchable on the these endpoints.

      See pages 11 and 17 of the PDF documentation https://xbrl.us/xbrl-api-documentation
