Index Returns & Constituent Lists
About the Data
All daily and monthly spreadsheets post total returns for the CRSP Market Indexes.
Total Market and Capitalization index monthly returns are generated from the backtest data from June 2001 through March 2011. Returns from April 2011 forward are generated from our live index production process.
Value and Growth Indexes monthly returns are generated from CRSP’s backtest through the full period, June 2001 through September 2012. Live production results begin September 10, 2012.
The Industry Sector Indexes were developed using the FTSE Industry Classification Benchmarks.
The CRSP ISS ESG indexes use the ISS ESG Performance Score (ESG Corporate Rating | ISS).
Daily returns begin with the Index inception date with the starting value set to 1000: April 1, 2011, for Total Market and all Capitalization indexes, September 10, 2012, for all Value and Growth indexes, and February 1, 2012, for Industry Sector Indexes, with the exception of the REIT Index, and September 7, 2021 for CRSP ISS ESG indexes. Inception dates precede the dates on which the indexes are initially disseminated via NASDAQ GIDS. Total Market and Capitalization indexes were disseminated via NASDAQ GIDS on August 15, 2011. Value and Growth indexes on October 1, 2012. Industry Sector Indexes were disseminated via NASDAQ GIDS on July 16, 2012. Total returns are gross returns; they do not include any tax considerations.
Constituents will be posted quarterly, delayed by a month - June constituents are posted in August, September constituents are posted in November, December constituents are posted in February, and March constituents are posted in May.
Note: We have switched to a new file format for the quarterly constituents file as of 10/31/2019. This new format combines all quarterly constituents data into one file and ensures accurate and timely posting of the information.
