<My apologies in advance: this post is full of numbers. It's hard to avoid -- the numbers tell quite a story... one that I think is worth hearing.>
I was just browsing through the help files in our ORBIS database (that's what a bus/econ librarian does for fun -- seriously!) when I came across an amazing spreadsheet.
Okay, I'll freely admit that not everyone will see the amazingness behind those numbers. Let me explain...
The sheet outlines the coverage of ORBIS across different countries. More specifically, it tells us the depth of the coverage of companies based in almost every country in the world. That is, it lists how many companies ORBIS is tracking in each country, and how much information it has on those companies (detailed, limited, or no financials).
Still with me? Great! Here come the numbers... <more>
