Providers are sectioned into tiers based on the depth of the coverage on each name, given some providers just offer raw data on various names and others deliver more focused analyses and insights. Also included is information on the providers taken from the database of alternative data providers maintained on alternativedata.org.
The following are criteria used to evaluate data providers.
