Legacy Year Outlier Revisions

    • : Our ongoing quality review process identified 188 outlier data points in legacy year Industry Financial and Micro-Firm content (about one point out of every 13,000 in our financial database). Not all of these were in previously published reports. Quality control filters applied to these data points resulted in legacy year changes to reports in about the same number of NAICS-6 industries.
    • In addition, coding errors were identified which had caused erroneous Cost of Sales and Gross Margin calculation in the industry-wide versions of some Local Industry Financial reports. These were corrected in both the June and March 2014 releases. No sales class-specific Industry Financials reports, and no US Industry Financial reports were affected.
    • Finally, we identified additional 2009 data of sufficient quality to allow us to add more than 500 reports of various sales classes to various industries. These reports were previously unpublished due to lack of 2009 data. Their publication results in new 5-year reports, but also in the recalculation of affected rollup reports (industrywide and NAICS-2-3-4) to include these new sales classes. Supplemented sales class reports rolled up at the NAICS-2-3-4 levels can be identified by changed listings of applied NAICS-6 industries on P1 of those reports.
