Are there ways to quantify which percentage of companies make a change to their quarterly earnings dates?

For example company X was scheduled to report results on February 8 and the date is moved to February 15 instead. This would count as a move, or binary outcome of YES. Companies which report on their expected date, would be NO.

    $\begingroup$ Interesting problem. There are many sources that give you the actual dates the earnings were reported (Compustat for example), the problem is going to be finding the expected dates some time prior to the release (this kind of data is not saved anywhere as far as I know). $\endgroup$ – Alex C Feb 6 '17 at 23:49
