Hi everyone,

I am looking for annual industry sales (i.e., annual sales per SIC number) for both global and US regions.

When entering a SIC code for the global firms, Compustat gives me a list of all firms and the sales for each firm. Given the different currencies these are reported in, these cannot be simply aggregated in order to get the aggregated industry sales. Is there any way to directly obtain the sales per SIC code without converting all the local currencies one-by-one to US dollars?

Thanks in advance,
Mare

For US, Compustat wrds_segmerged: https://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/tools/variable.cfm?library_id=129&file_id=77282

For international I don’t know of any datasets (would love to hear about it if there are any such datasets).

Best Regards,

Joost
