In this article, you will learn about the Datamaran level of emphasis classification and how it is computed.
The Benchmark analysis is based on a methodology developed by our team of data scientists to assess the level of emphasis each company puts on a specific topic in their corporate reports.
Datamaran level of emphasis is ranked on a four-level scale:
- No mention
This classification has been built using statistical methods based on quantitative and qualitative variables, including:
- The number of sentences mentioning the topics (“hits”): valid occurrence of one of the search terms or any combination of search terms corresponding to that topic.
- Location of the topic: for example, more emphasis is given if the topic is mentioned in the CEO letter than in a footnote.
- The number of topic mentions per sentence; avoiding duplicate or multiple-topic mentions.
- The number of topics found in the document.
