This classification is related to NAF Rev. 1. After the 2008 classification review, it has been replaced by a set of 7 specific levels of aggregation.
The summary economic classification (NES), adopted by Insee in 1994, is a national dual classification for both activities and products meeting the needs of economic analysis and dissemination. The groupings of NES are the common basis for the presentation of aggregated economic data in every domain : they aim to reflect the behaviour of actors within a market whereas NACE and NAF structure refers to different criteria such as specificities of the production process or the sector's organization.
NES includes 3 levels, each level comprising respectively 16, 36 and 114 items. The version of NES available here takes the 2003 revision of NACE and NAF into account.
