Answer

Several sources can be used to find or calculate industry ratios.

Yahoo! Business Industry Browser: Average ratios for industries are provided. Click on an industry to see ratios for individual companies.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek: Allows for sector, industry, and company comparisons.

Mergent Online: Watch this video from Ohio State University Libraries to learn how to compile industry average ratio reports using the financial information in Mergent Online. With this method, you use the Mergent "Competitors" tab to compile your own list of industry peers, then create a chart with the average ratios you select.
