Extended Dataset Description

Estimize is an open financial estimates platform designed to collect forward looking financial estimates from independent, buy-side, and sell-side analysts, along with those of private investors and academics. By sourcing estimates from a diverse community of individuals, Estimize provides a more accurate, more timely, and more representative view of expectations compared to sell side only data sets which suffer from several severe biases. Currently, 75,000+ analysts contribute to Estimize, resulting in coverage on over 2,200 stocks and 80 economic indicators each quarter. The Estimize consensus has proven more accurate than comparable sell side data sets over 70% of the time and by 15% on average.
