CRSP/Compustat Merged Database

The CRSP/Compustat Merged Database provides CRSP and Compustat subscribers the ability to access CRSP’s stock data and Compustat’s Xpressfeed fundamental data within a single linked database. The CRSPLink® maps complex relationships over time between CRSP and Compustat company and security permanent identifiers. The level of accuracy is superior to that found when linking by other methods, such as by CUSIP* or Ticker.

CRSP/Compustat Merged Database is available in SAS, ASCII, and R formats. These files are intended for use with the CRSP SAS and ACII stock files and Compustat data files that contain GVKEYs and IIDs. For more information, click here.
