Hi!

I was wondering if anyone has experience with collecting, or generating a leverage ratio using Compustat data. If so, I’d be interested to know what variables are used?
I would like to include these data for my research, as a control variable.

Thanks!
Best regards,
Thomas

if you use funda in Compustat,
debt=(dlt+dlcc)/at
