Strategically oriented business information in tabular format.
RDS TableBase covers more than 90 industries and is international in scope. Thousands of tables are added annually and are drawn from the world's most authoritative business publications, including premier trade and business journals, leading industry newsletters, plus a broad collection of regional, national, and international newspapers. It also contains historical tabular information from statistical annuals, brokerage reports, trade association reports, and governmental reports.
Every record has a unique table title which aids users in making precise selection of tables that meet their searching needs. Many of the table records also have textual content which supports the data in the tables. The tables provide information such as: market share, market size, capacity, production, imports, exports, sales, product and brand rankings, forecasts, healthcare statistics and demographics.
TableBase may be searched by entering words or word phrases in the "Word or Phrase" field. Words or phrases may be joined with Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) to develop more complex search statements. For greater precision in the searching process, enter a company name into the "Company Name" field when appropriate.
Another feature is that only the table title, table text, and descriptor fields are searchable. Text that accompanies the table is not searchable. This helps to assure that the words entered for a search appear in the table and produce relevant result sets. Additionally, you may select terms from the index field text boxes which include Concept Terms, Marketing Terms, Industry Names, SIC/Product Codes, Document Types, Geographic Codes, and Journal Names. While making selections from these additional index field text boxes are not required, the use of these additional terms should produce more precise retrieval results.
