Despite new policies and sweeping regulatory change, accounting scandals continue to rock the business world. The media reports on these events in depth, often tipped off by whistleblowers within these organizations. But what goes unnoticed are the questionable accounting practices that go unreported at companies around the world.

We are conducting an anonymous survey to assess how widespread accounting manipulation - the material and intentional misrepresentation of reported financial results to create an overly optimistic impression of a company’s financial performance and position - actually is. Our intent is to quantify such behavior while respecting the privacy of participants.

If you have seen evidence of these types of behaviors throughout the course of your career, or thought "that's not right" but been unable to take formal action, we hope that you'll contribute to our study by participating in a short survey. Your anonymous feedback will help inform the extent and magnitude of accounting manipulation at North American companies that is never reported to the public and not corrected through formal accounting restatement.

This short survey (about five minutes) is going to ask you about instances where you know that intentional accounting manipulation occurred in a company. We understand that this is a sensitive question, and we guarantee that your responses will be absolutely confidential.

We will ask for names of companies and specific details about what you have observed, but nothing in the survey will link to you or your company. In order to make this survey completely anonymous, all data that we collect will remain blinded and no information about you will be requested or retained.


Thank you for your help – Please take the short survey.
