Data year vs Fiscal year

Data year vs Fiscal year

In the CV™Suite, it is important to differentiate between “data years,” “calendar years,” and “fiscal years.” A “data year” in the CV™Suite refers to the actual year that the data represent. For example, 2012 occupation figures reflect jobs in 2012. A “calendar” year simply refers to the actual year when data was released. An example of the difference between “data” and “calendar” years would be that nonprofit revenue for data year 2011 was released in the calendar year 2013. The lag between data and calendar years is due to data collection and processing procedures. Finally, “fiscal year” refers to how … Continued
Industry Earnings Data and Sales Data: What is the difference?

Industry Earnings Data and Sales Data: What is the difference?

In August 2015, the CV™Suite began showcasing Industry Earnings data rather than Industry Sales. Although Industry Sales data is still available on the site, Industry Earnings data will provide CV™Suite users with a more comprehensive measure of economic impact in their community. First, it is important to make clear that Industry Sales and Industry Earnings measure two different types of impacts on the creative economy: Industry Sales Sales (also referred to as revenue) is calculated by multiplying the price at which goods or services are sold by the number of units or amount sold. Industry sales is comprised of the amount … Continued

Our data updates are assigned a data version number (i.e. 2018.3) that corresponds with Emsi’s data versions. A “data year” in the CVSuite refers to the actual year that the data represent. For example, … Continued
