Abstract:     
Though the nonprofit sector is a vital part of the U.S. economy, research in nonprofit accounting is relatively limited. Lack of information on the data may be part of the reason. In an effort to broaden the awareness of the data sources and ensure the quality of nonprofit research, we discuss archival data sources available to nonprofit researchers, data issues, and potential resolutions to those problems. Our review encompasses three broad topical areas: financial reporting, compensation, and auditing. Overall, our paper should raise awareness of data sources in the nonprofit area, increase production, and enhance the quality of nonprofit research.
