We have chosen the structure of stock rights and board of director variables. About accounting information quality, this article used the examination result of the listed companies’information quality on Shenzhen Stock Exchange.Through the empirical analysis we discovered, the circulation stock proportion and the accounting information quality has remarkable correlation, the raising of the circulation stock proportion can improve remarkably the accountings information quality.
