There are a variety of different mechanisms and rules used by each fundamentals data provider to standardize and report company fundamentals. For example, the transformation of reported statements to quarterly statements.

Is there a study comparing the quality and tradeoffs of the techniques employed by the various fundamentals data providers?

I could not find a study about it.

BUT

"COMMERCIAL HISTORICAL DATA

HIGHER RESOLUTION AND MORE COMPLETE DATASETS ARE GENERALLY NOT AVAILABLE FOR FREE. BELOW IS A LIST OF VENDORS WHICH HAVE PASSED OUR QUALITY SCREENING (IN TOTAL, WE SCREENED OVER A DOZEN VENDORS). TO QUALIFY, THE VENDOR MUST AGGREGATE DATA FROM ALL US NATIONAL/REGIONAL EXCHANGES AS ONLY COMPLETE DATASETS ARE SUITABLE FOR RESEARCH USE

Caltech did a good job of breaking down what was good and what was not. "Ctrl-F" "errors" or "refresh rate"

    $\begingroup$ Unfortunately, both of those links are for stock market price data. The question refers to company fundamentals (or financials) data as a company would report annually on SEC Form 10-K and quarterly on SEC Form 10-Q. Specifically, the question concerns the techniques providers of this data employ to transform, for example, year-to-date to quarterly data (e.g. cash flow statements). $\endgroup$ – Christopher Lewis Jul 27 '16 at 15:15
  • $\begingroup$ "Higher resolution and more complete datasets are generally not available for free. " Invite me to a chat so I can show you why that was a good answer. I cannot do all of your work for you. I will edit mine to show you what I was talking about. Please bold what you want, I understand you wanted fundamental equity, but there were 3 sources in there that provided it. $\endgroup$ – Ted Taylor of Life Jul 27 '16 at 15:21
