match pre-grant application and (raw) assignee
Dear Community and PatentsView-Team,
I have a question about matching the pre-grant application and the assignees:
I merge the pre-grant application and the "rawassignee" data using the document id. By doing so, about half of the document numbers from the pre-grant application are not matched, and the number of unmatched document IDs is a lot higher after 2014. Does this sound right? Since the raw assignee data contains individuals as well, what does it mean if an application is not matched to any assignee? Thank you so much and sorry in advance if the question has been answered before or is trivial.
