Estou traduzindo um questionário de pesquisa de mercado a ser realizada com dirigentes de empresas. Uma das perguntas diz respeito ao país em que a empresa opera. Esta lista está dividida em regiões, por exemplo: Europa, América Latina, Ásia Central, etc. Na seção "América do Norte" as possibilidades são: "Canada, USA - Public, USA - PCS". Entendo que "USA - Public" refere-se a empresas dos EUA listadas em bolsa. Mas e "PCS"? Alguém poderia me dar uma luz?

Would "usa - public" perhaps refer to public sector bodies, i.e. government, as opposed to private sector entities, such as companies?
