Does XBRL US have a code to indicate if a CIK belong to a publicly-traded company, as opposed to a privately-held company?

Hi Tim – sorry for the delayed response. I’m not aware of any privately-held companies that have CIKs – can you give me an example – ?
FWIW – a query like this (changing offset) should give you a full list of alpha-sorted companies and tickers:

Thank you for your reply and for the code. I will use that code to see how far I get. The Financial Data Sets that I download contains so many CIKs and I try to narrow the list down to public companies or companies that have stock prices so I can make investment decisions.
Regarding the CIK for privately held companies, I assume that they are privately held because I can’t find any stock information on them. I always assumed that the SEC gives each filer a CIK, whether they are public or private. My confusion could also come from companies changing their names.
Examples of a few CIKs that I can’t find information:
1425392 – Grant Hartford Group.
1441082 – Lake Forest Minerals Inc
1111741 – Dynaresource Inc
1403570 – Quantum Materials Corp
Thanks again, David!

From the CIKs you shared, it looks like Grant Hartford stopped filing in 2012; the others are still filing with the SEC (listed on OTCMKTS):
There are some details on SEC’S CIK at the bottom of page 1: https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar/quick-reference/form-id.pdf
