The Corporate Source Book is created annually from corporate income tax returns filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The records are arranged by minor industry codes, asset size class, and by the presence of net income. There are two records (one with net income and one without net income) for each of the asset size classes, for each of the minor industry codes. The more than 6,000 records represent the averages for the 110,000-150,000 corporate income tax returns sampled annually.
