Research project: Accrual Earnings Management, Real Earnings Management and Information Uncertainty

Abstract

My thesis aims at evaluating the relative performance of models to detect accrual earnings management and real earnings management. The power of earnings management detection models is evaluated through examining the frequency with which detection models of accrual earnings management and real earnings management generate type II errors. The findings of thesis have implications that while recent empirical studies has widely accepted real earnings management as the tools that managers of firms use to manipulate earnings, the power test of the relative models to detect such behaviour is questionable.
