The Wharton Research Data System (WRDS) maintains several databases in easy-to-use and up-to-date formats. This web-based data management system allows faculty and students to easily retrieve information from a wide variety of financial, economic, and marketing data sources. Through WRDS, CMC subscribes to Board Analyst, COMPUSTAT North American, CRSP, I/B/E/S, IRRC, KLD, Mergent FISD, and Thomson Financial in addition to the handful of data sets that automatically come with WRDS. Detailed descriptions of these services can be found below. Claremont Consortium faculty, administrative staff, and students are welcome to use the tutorial on the FEI website, http://fei.claremontmckenna.edu/databases/, to create a WRDS account.
