FAST FACTS FOR EFFECTIVE DATE FILTER
How does ktMINE capture the Effective Date of an agreement?
ktMINE’s analysts look for the effective date in each agreement text. If the date is not in the body of the agreement, then we look for a date in the signature blocks. If there is a signing date(s), the latest date is used. If there is no signing date, we then look for the date when agreement was written. If no date can be located after this step, then the effective date is listed as Unknown.
What date does ktMINE assign for agreements without a specific month or day noted in the agreement?
If an agreement contains a year only, ktMINE assigns an effective date of January 1. If an agreement contains a year and a month, but no specific date, then the first day of the month is recorded as the effective date. Examples:
- Agreement signed in 2001 = Effective date is coded as January 1, 2001
- Agreement signed in May of 1998 = Effective date is coded as May 1, 1998
- Agreement signed June 23, 2003 = Effective date is coded as June 23, 2003
This ensures that no agreement that matches your other criteria is excluded based on an incomplete date.
