Business Locations

businessesData Licensed from US Data Depot showing the location, type, size, and other attributes for over 720,000 businesses in Los Angeles County.  This data is for internal County use only and cannot be provided to external agencies.  Pricing for this data is available at the US Data Depot Website.  After analysis with other comparable databases, this database was selected for its price and accuracy.

Processing information

This dataset came as a comma-delimited dataset, processed to an access database by the Community Development Commission.  Two processes were run:

  1. The addresses were geocoded against local and national geocoding files to assign coordinates to the location, and generate the GIS files.
  2. 2 and 4 digit SIC (click here for a description of what an SIC code is) codes were extracted and translated into the relevant Code Tables
    • The 2-digit codes are the first two digits of the 6-digit provided SIC code, the 2-digit code is the first 4 digits of the same.  The data already has the 6-digit code description.
    • The source of the SIC Code Translation is This Excel Spreadsheet downloaded from this website
  3. Note – SIC codes are being replaced by newer NAICS codes, but this wasn’t filled out that often, so I processed the SIC codes.


This data is accessible only to County staff for internal analysis purposes only – it cannot be displayed on websites, nor can it be distributed in any way.  Please read the Terms and Conditions before using.

County staff can access the data directly from the Enterprise GIS Repository through the layer file below.
