  • Data are available for ten years. You'll get the most up-to-date information for the current period, and you'll be able to compare it to past periods quickly.


Industry Default Probabilities and Cash Flow Measures include:

  • Probability of default estimates on a percentage scale mapped to a .pd bond rating scale.
  • Cash flow is measured on a common-size percentage scale.
  • Change in position, normalized, year over year, for eight financial statement line items.
  • Data arrayed by asset and sales size.
