Quarterly XBRL-based Public Company Financial Report Quality Measurement (Nov 2017)

The graphic below shows the results of my quarterly measurements of fundamental accounting concept relations continuity cross checks of XBRL-based financial reports of public companies which are submitted to the SEC.

I have been measuring specific fundamental accounting information of public company XBRL-based financial reports being submitted to the SEC for going on four years now.  The quality of the information reported continually improves each time measurements are taken, which is a good sign.

Highlights for this quarter include three new filing agents/software vendors that have reached the point where 90% or more of the XBRL-based reports they create are consistent with all of my business rules: Compliance XpresswareEZ-XBRL, and IRIS Carbon.
