                                                    USERS' GUIDE
The Barnes Reports are the leading publications on U.S. industries and estimates and forecasts
on sales and employment demographics. As a way of making the most of this information, we have
included a few suggestions and tips to aid you in processing and using this information.

Managers, planners, and market researchers use this information for a variety of activities:
   • Sizing markets and segments – You can estimate the size of the regional markets you sell in
              and your company’s market penetration into that market. You can do the same with the market
              segments in which you participate.
   • Sales territory potential – You can estimate your market penetration and also the market potential
              in any regional area or market segment.
   • Sales forecasting – With the estimates on the size of the industry, market researchers supporting
              a sales force can then estimate and forecast the future size of the industry.
   • Advertising strategies – You can use this information for forecasting and estimating sales potential
              and target advertising campaigns.
   • Competitive analysis – You will use the information to locate your possible competitors (if it is
              not already known), to estimate their size, growth and strengths and weaknesses and to see what
              market segments in which they participate.

We recognize that many managers today are asked to provide detailed analysis of their markets,
sales territories, distribution channels, and product placements. We have organized these reports in a
logical format making your market analysis and research tasks easy to accomplish.
