Analysis was conducted by a descriptive statistical method. The results obtained showed that the variable profitability, which was measured on return on asset, affected the value relevance of accounting earnings, while the variables good corporate governance, firm size, and growth opportunities did not affect the value relevance of accounting earnings.
