NACE code[edit]

Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Economics

   Done: NACE code (P4496) (Talk and documentation)
Descriptioncode in the Statistical classification of economic activities in the European Community (NACE), the standard European industry classification system
RepresentsStatistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community (Q732298)
Data typeString
DomainEconomic activities
ExampleMicelio (Q28381786) industry (P452) Other professional, scientific and technical activities (Q29584349) → "74.909"
Planned useAdd the economic activity codes to various institutes that are used as affiliations of people.

In the European Union NACE codes are used to monitor economic activity. Entreprises, institutes or organisation are annotated with these NACE codes (List of NACE codes). Having the different economic activities and their respective NACE codes would allow for quite some interesting queries. For example: "What are the economic activities of different universities". What is the density of a given economic activity in a given region. There exists public data on economic activities. In Belgium for example the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises (Q16626729) publish all Belgium enterprises and their NACE codes as public data. Andrawaag (talk) 22:37, 14 July 2017 (UTC)


Symbol support vote.svg Support Sounds very useful. Do you know of CORDIS entries (see CORDIS (Q763756)) are annotated with NACE codes? --Egon Willighagen (talk) 13:18, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support We have NAICS code (P3224) for North American Industry Classification System (Q3509282), so it makes sense to add a property for the European system also. —ShelleyAdams (talk) 13:35, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

  • Why isn't this external-ID? ChristianKl (talk) 13:52, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
    • @ChristianKl: it's a classification code, so the same code may be applied to many different wikidata items. String datatype is correct. ArthurPSmith (talk) 17:53, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
      • Okay, it would still be nice if we could include the full unabbrivated name of the system in the description. ChristianKl (talk) 20:43, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
