Our industry data comes from our own proprietary database; therefore, our reports rely on the information inputted by our customers. Whenever one of our customers inputs a financial statement, we keep the information. We do run it through a very strict filtering process so we get rid of any data outside of 2 standard deviations of the mean. If the data makes it through our filtering process we will add it to our industry database. If we do not have enough information, there will be N/A’s in the report.
Suggestions: Do not filter down our industry data too far. Try for a broader search and we are more likely to have industry data.
