This is a guide to the various financial databases available to the Dartmouth community. Thanks to support from the Tuck School of Business and Dartmouth's Arts and Sciences, the Library subscribes to a wide range of financial databases. This guide is designed specifically for students enrolled in econ 66, but others will find it helpful as well. Use the links on the left to find sources for specific types of data such as stock prices, bond yields, and company fundamentals.

Finding the data is just the first step. Wrangling the data and preparing it for analysis is the second. If you have questions about using Stata, you can visit the Stata Refresher guide here:
