Who doesn't love Wikipedia? We all use it--it's a quick and easy place to learn more about a subject. However, as you hopefully already know, anyone can write and edit Wikipedia articles. This means Wikipedia can be good for increasing your knowledge and understanding of a subject but shouldn’t be taken as fact or used as a reference in assignments.
If you want information that has been written and reviewed by experts, IBISWorld is ideal. It analyses official and publicly available sources from government agencies, international bodies, industry associations and companies' financial statements, and combines these with in-house data and modelling to provide the most accurate revenue and profit data and forecasts available. You can be confident in IBISWorld to deliver accurate data.
