Public Company Quality Continues to Improve, Trend is Good

The quality improvement trend continues.  There are currently 10 software generators and filing agents that have 90% or more of their XBRL-based public company financial reports consistent with all of the fundamental accounting concept relations continuity cross-checks.  Average is 87.9%.  On a per test basis, 99.19% of all relations are consistent with expectation.

The biggest notable item is that Workiva went from 84% consistency to 87% consistency, fixing about 114 specific errors.
