Hi everyone,

For my analysis I do need regularly quarterly dividends from CRSP. Does anyone know what distribution codes I need for that? Is it 1230-1239, 1330-1339 and 1430-1439?

Thanks.

Hi,

Does p. 161 (Distribution codes) from the CRSP data manual answer your question?
see: http://www.cob.unt.edu/firel/data/stock_ind_data_descriptions.pdf

Best,

Joost

Thanks Joost. I’ve already seen this manual entry. That’s how I created my suggestion. Unfortunately, I am not really sure, whether my suggestion covers what is usually understood as “regularly quarterly dividends”.

I see; in any case, the code series you mention make sense.

Best regards,

Joost
