For dividend event, what exactly is observation date (DATE filed in the DSEALL table)? It is neither declaration date (DCLRDT) nor payment date(PAYDT
). And it seems NOT to be ex-dividend date either.

Thanks for any comments!

hi,

I didn’t check any entries (still downloading), but could it be that date is the date that the dividend is entered into the system by CRSP? (Is it between the declaration and ex-dividend dates?)

best regards,

Joost
