WRDS US Patents

WRDS US Patents - large

In line with the recent trend in increased usage of patent data in finance and accounting research, WRDS US Patents provides easier access to the patent data. Patent-level data is directly parsed from USPTO's XML files. Researchers can use this database together with the patent valuation data contributed by Kogan et al.

The current version covers the years from 2011-2019. When WRDS US Patents is officially released, the data will be updated to cover a longer period of time, and will continue to be automatically updated.
