To find financial ratios for Industries, please see our guide  Finding Financial Ratios for Industries.

Note that not all ratios are available in all databases; you may need to use multiple databases in order to find the ratios that you've been asked to find for a class assignment. You might also need to search for a company first to determine their industry and then research the industry ratios. For more information, see: Finding Financial Ratios for Companies.

Note that, as mentioned in the guide, Hoovers' Ratio Comparisons link, when available for a company, will let you compare a company's financial ratios against those of its industry and also its sector.

If you're looking for industry ratios for an industry, choose a company within that industry to search in Hoover's.
