Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture self-employed individuals who sell the organization's products or services - either to other distributors (wholesale) or to the ultimate consumer (retail). Organizations wishing to report on distributor organizations should instead use Distributor Organizations: Total (PI1060) and/or its various submetrics.
  • Distributors do not need to exclusively sell the organization's products or services. Direct employees that distribute the organization's goods or services should be considered as employees and not as distributors.
