Company groups organize Companies around specific topics or associations to help frame research, analysis and comparison.
Through company groups you can select a group of companies by hand (using an explicit list) or based on specified metric answer values or ranges (using an implicit list).
Company groups can be:
bookmarked and used to filter answers on Metric pages and the Answer Dashboard,
used to help define the scope of Datasets and Projects, and
used to set applicability parameters on Metrics.
