Compustat & stock indexes

One of the latest expansions to the Compustat databases is the inclusion of more stock indexes to the Compustat Global databases. These indexes are available through the part database Index Constituents. This can be found in the menu on the left side in portal Wharton Research Data Services just the same as the with the North America database:



More and more indexes keep being added to Index Constituents database. 4 major European index examples are:

Dutch stock index: AEX
GKEYX: 150262
Ticker: I3NLD014
Start index: 1983
Available range: 1994 – now

French stock index: CAC 40
GVKEYX: 150093
Ticker: I3FRA001
Start index: 1987
Available range: 1987 – now

German stock index: DAX 30
GVKEYX: 150007
Ticker: I3DEU003

UK stock index: FTSE 100
GVKEYX: 150008
Ticker: I3GBR049

Not every index is available from the start of its original beginning but I assume more historical index component data may be added later.
