This research group is for designing “Commons” metrics, metrics that are:

  • Commonly used to measure company performance

  • Commonly understood in roughly the same way by

  • Part of the WikiRate “Commons”, these metrics and their data are open to be refined by community members, any member of the community can join this group.

Some of the metrics designed by this group are “Descendant” metrics, they inherit data from existing metrics that follow more tightly defined standards or come from particular sources.

The intention is to have more loosely defined versions of these commonly used metrics, so that they can incorporate the maximum amount of data and allow for larger-scale analyses.
