|Segment Reporting [Abstract]
Reportable Segments. We manage our business and report our financial results through the following three reportable segments, which are the same as our operating segments:
–U.S. Information Solutions (“USIS”)
The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in our summary of significant accounting policies in Note 1 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in our 2021 Form 10-K. We evaluate the performance of these reportable segments based on their operating revenues, operating income and operating margins, excluding any unusual or infrequent items, if any. The measurement criteria for segment profit or loss and segment assets are substantially the same for each reportable segment. Inter-segment sales and transfers are not material for all periods presented. All transactions between segments are accounted for at fair market value or cost depending on the nature of the transaction and no timing differences occur between segments.
A summary of segment products and services is as follows:
Workforce Solutions. This segment includes employment, income, criminal history and social security number verification services as well as complementary payroll-based transaction services, employment tax management services and identity theft protection products.
U.S. Information Solutions. This segment includes consumer and commercial information services (such as credit information and credit scoring, credit modeling services and portfolio analytics, locate services, fraud detection and prevention services, identity verification services and other consulting services); mortgage services; financial marketing services; identity management; and credit monitoring products sold to resellers or directly to consumers.
