The industry report database IBISWorld usually identifies the individual analyst who prepared a report, and therefore when using APA format, your entry in the Reference List should resemble the following:
Haider, Z. (2014). Commercial Banking in the US. IBISWorld Industry Report 52211. Retrieved from IBISWorld database.
If no author name is given, you can use the following example:
IBISWorld. (2014, August). Single Location Full-Service Restaurants in the US. IBISWorld Industry Risk Rating Report 72211b. Retrieved from IBISWorld database.
You can use a similar format for reports from the databases FirstResearch or Business Insights: Global, depending on whether an author's name is given or not. For more help, see the links below for more help with citing business database resources using APA style.
