An overview of the WRDS platform and available data sets.

What is WRDS?

The Wharton Research Data Service (also known as WRDS) is an Internet-based business data research service from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. WRDS provides access to a number of empirical data sets used by business and economics researchers such as Compustat, CRSP, and IBES.

Access to the WRDS platform is thanks to the generosity of the Goodman School of Business, Brock University.
