Using Jupyter at WRDS

Step-by-step beginner's guide, providing a hands-on Jupyter experience.

Start Using Jupyter

A Jupyter Notebook is an open-source web-based computing environment that enables the combination of live code, equations, explanatory text, and visualizations. Jupyter at WRDS is available at WRDS JupyterHub. Learn how to connect to WRDS via Jupyter, create a query, and produce a graph of your query results using the following exercise. It should take less than ten minutes.

Open our sample Notebook and begin immediately by clicking the Open in JupyterLab tab! Log in using your WRDS credentials.
