Hit the "Register" link in the top menu bar and submit a request for your individual username and password to access WRDS. The request will be sent to the WRDS administrators at St Thomas for review. We will process your request upon receipt.
Note: WRDS is instituting Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) beginning at the end of November 2022. You will need to verify your email, register for a new account with Duo Security, and then decide whether to use their mobile app or the web interface to do the two-factor authentication. You will know when you need to register a device for two-factor authentication if, when you log in to WRDS, a message appears alerting you that you need to enroll. | 2FA Instructions
WRDS data is compiled from independent sources that specialize in specific historical data. The main sources for St Thomas are The Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP), Standard & Poor's CompuStat, and The Institutional Brokers Estimate System (I/B/E/S), as detailed below.
We have access to several other datasets as well. See the WRDS website for more information.
