Wharton Research Data Services, commonly referred to as WRDS (and pronounced "Words"), is a collection of economic, finance, management and marketing databases that are delivered through a common web interface.
WRDS is managed by the Chicago Booth School of Business. Access is limited to these groups:
WRDS uses individual accounts, which must be approved by a local administrator before access is granted.
Compustat and CRSP (Center for Research in Securities Prices) are the most frequently accessed datasets in WRDS.
There are many other datasets in WRDS and not all are available to University of Chicago researchers. Current subscriptions will be displayed when you log in, but in some cases not all parts of a product are available.
