When conducting financial research, you may be required to combine estimates information from IBES with equity returns from CRSP. This lesson is designed for researchers who wish to link data between the IBES and CRSP databases using WRDS’ familiar web query format.
Select the Slide Deck for a guided assignment on this topic. Then use the link to the IBES CRSP Query Form to try the exercise yourself.
The IBES CRSP Linking Table requires subscriptions to both the IBES and CRSP databases.
