Investors need reliable information for decision-making, so it is important to measure the quality of public information disclosed by quoted companies. This paper advances in the measurement of disclosed information using the multiple correspondence analysis methodology to reduce the number of traditionally used variables, resulting in three variables: i) disclosure of accounting policies and criteria, ii) disclosure of financial information and iii) disclosure of the board assessment. Using three these dimensions, we characterize and classify the analyzed companies according to their information disclosure.
