By quota and simple random sampling, sample is 235 listed companies in the Stock Exchange of Thailand. The risk management disclosures and earnings management are collected from either annual reports or 56-1 reports in 2015. Descriptive analysis and multiple regression are used to analysis the data. As the results, the average level of risk management disclosures of listed companies is in good level.
