Historical data

Data prior to 1994 is incomplete as that is when the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission was phasing in its publicly-available Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) system over a 3-year period.[10] Older corporate filings are stored on microfiche at the John Adams Building of the Library of Congress and can be obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.[11]
