As the dataset grows, RICF is being expanded to panel database. One of the most critical challenges is to identify the same foundation across different years. The “ricf_oid.tsv” is built to resolve this issue. You can find this file under the root directory (GitHub master branch).
- ricf_oid: RICF unique organization ID.
- ba_cn: Foundation name used by RICF.
- nacao_uscc: Unified Social Credit Code (统一社会信用代码) developed by NACAO (http://www.nacao.org.cn/; 全国组织机构统一社会信用代码数据服务中心).
- name_set: String token recording all the aliases of a foundation, names are splited by “#”. This variable can be used for “fuzzy matching”, although errors may occur. Use with caution!
