How does one assess whether or not the IPO window is narrowing or not? To help, we've produced the 2015 U.S. IPO Trends Report, sponsored by R.R.

Here are some introductory data points from the report: Through the end of 3Q, PE and VC firms have taken 89 U.S. companies public in 2015, for a combined $14 billion initial raise. Not inconsiderable, but a far cry from 2013 and 2014, which together saw 344 IPOs for over $70 billion. For a more comprehensive overview, the report also dives into:
PE and VC IPO activity by sector
Median and average offering sizes and post valuations
Samples of IPO performance quarter by quarter this year
