Great question Mike. Our FACTS Framework measures the trustworthiness of public companies based on 5 quantitative indicators of trustworthy business behavior. We are not measuring trust, reputation or customer loyalty. Also, please keep in mind that no company is perfect. As indicated below, less than 50 companies scored above a 70 in 2013. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Barbara
