The Parent/Consolidated flag appears only in non-US files. The field is populated with a “P” when the company is followed on a Parent basis and Null when the company is followed on a Consolidated basis.
Canadian companies included in the INT files, a designation of “C” identifies companies followed in Canadian dollars. If there is no designation present then the Canadian company is followed in US dollars.
The flag has different usages in the US and non-US file. Its purpose for Canadian companies is to mark the companies whose currency is Canadian. For non-US companies, it is a way to differentiate between companies reporting on a parent or consolidated basis.
