Quality of public company XBRL-based financial filings to the SEC improved yet again as measured against a set of 21 fundamental accounting concept relations.

Last month (June 30) there were 3 software vendors/filing agents who had 80% or more of their filings consistent with all fundamental accounting concept relations. As of July 31, than number has grown to 5.  We are closing in on the point where 75% of all public companies are consistent with all the fundamental accounting concept relations, standing at 74.7% currently.  We are also closing in on 99% consistency on a per test basis.
