The Relationship Between the Expansion of Company Reports and the Quality of Users'Decisions. The Problem of Information Overload
María Flora Muíño Vázquez
The emphasis on providing all relevant information for users' decision making processes is leading to the publication of reports so expansive as to be in danger of overloading the individual and harming their decision making processes. The aim of this paper is to provide a detailed analysis of up-to-date research in order to assess the possibility that a problem of information overload could exist in the financial environment. Despite important differences in the design of the reviewed studies, from their results we can conclude that the quality of users' decisions improves as information load increases up to a point beyond which data load becomes excessive and the direction of the relationship between these variables reverses.
