Q. How do I cite an industry report using APA format?
Last Updated: Feb 17, 2022     Views: 65235

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:

Author, A. A. (Year of Publication). Title of Report (IBISWorld Industry Report [Number]). Retrieved from IBISWorld database.

Schulman, G. (2021). 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.
