Employees refer to all individuals working at a place. Additional details are available for employees with decision-making authority.
Contacts represent executives or key decision-making personnel at the place. We always try to collect and indicate the main person in charge at a business.
Depending on the size of the business, we attempt to collect additional contacts. For businesses with 20-49 employees, we try to collect sales and financial executives. For businesses with 50 or more employees, we also try to collect human resources executives.
Contacts are collected from a variety of public sources such as SEC documents, press releases, company websites, annual reports, and telephone interviews.
contacts.first_name- The first name of the contact.
contacts.last_name- The last name of the contact.
contacts.gender- The gender of the contact.
contacts.email- The email address of the contact.
contacts.professional_title- The professional degree or title of the contact.
contacts.title_codes- A list of the contact's job titles.
contacts.primary- Information on whether the contact is the primary contact for the location.
primary_contact.first_name- The first name of the contact.
primary_contact.last_name- The last name of the contact.
primary_contact.gender- The gender of the contact.
primary_contact.email- The email address of the contact.
primary_contact.professional_title- The professional degree or title of the contact.

Use primary contacts when you only want details for the main person in charge of the place. Use contacts when you want the full list of all contacts we have collected for a place.
We collect actual and estimated employee count data for both locations and corporations. Volunteers are never included in counts, unless the location has no paid employees.
location_employee_count- The number of employees who work at this place.
estimated_location_employee_count- Estimates the number of employees who work at this location.
corporate_employee_count- The actual, reported total number of employees at all locations in a corporate family.
estimated_corporate_employee_count- Estimates the total number of employees at all locations in a corporate family.
Location counts only include employees at that location. Corporate employee counts include all employees in a corporate family. It's common for places that are part of a corporate family to have both a location and corporate employee count.
The estimated count fields contain both estimated and actual values. When the corresponding actual value is known, the estimate will equal the actual. When the actual isn't known, but there is an estimate, only the estimated field will be populated.
Because of this, you can expect the estimated fields to have a higher fill rate.
