The annual CSRI 50 is created using data collected for the Reputation Institute's 2009 Global Pulse Study and analyzed in coordination with the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship. Researchers use a subset of survey results that focus on more than 200 companies with a dominant presence in the United States and are believed to have a reasonably high recognition factor with the general public.
