Detailed Organization Data
|The Ringgold Identifier is a unique numerical identifier. Its purpose is to disambiguate organizations. Ringgold IDs are used to enforce data governance practises and eliminate duplicate records. This unique ID is also a powerful tool for joining records across internal and external systems.||Each institution is described with up to 25 pieces of structured metadata including: full legal name, location, alternate names, URL, size metrics, tier, subjects, industry sector, and more.||Related organizations are linked together, such as universities and their departments, or corporate entities with subsidiary firms or divisions. Identify hierarchies are key to understanding complex relationships and the wider market.|
