Finding data

A guide to financial and socio-economic data such as Compustat, LSEG Workspace, SDC Platinum, WRDS, and CRSP


Below you find an overview of the available data sources for macroeconomic data, labour markets, international trade, and other economics data. Some of these sources are licensed sources and can only be used by students or researchers at VU University. Most sources can be accessed from home. If you need instructions on how to gain access you can check the information in the library web site.

Before you start downloading data from databases it is a good idea to read through the Libguide on Working with data.
