WFA Conference Research Roundup

CRSP data played a critical role at the Western Finance Association (WFA) annual conference held June 17 – 20, 2015, in Seattle, Washington. Since WFA’s inception in 1965, CRSP data has underpinned a significant amount of the scholarly research presented each year. This year, approximately 125 papers were presented and CRSP data was widely used across a variety of topics.
