Report to the Nation

Report to the Nations is the most widely quoted source of occupational fraud data in the world. The first Report to the Nation was launched in 1996 by ACFE Founder, Dr. Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA, because he recognized that there was a glaring lack of information about occupational fraud. Collectively, these studies represent countless hours of work by our staff spent gathering, analyzing and interpreting the data from thousands of cases of fraud committed against organizations of all types and sizes.
