Research Computing >> Data >> Economática
Economática is available to current Kellogg faculty, staff and students through Kellogg's Windows network.
The Economática database covers over 5,000 companies in Latin America. Countries covered in Latin America are: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. Until January 2003, the database also covered the following Asian countries: China, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan. Old information on these (up to the third quarter 2002) is still available. Economática also includes over 400 U.S. company results for use as benchmarks.
The data starts as early as 1986, depending on the country. It includes quarterly company balance sheets and daily market data (stock prices, ADRs, indexes, currency exchange rates, inflation rates, net asset value per share for mutual funds, etc), financial and trading ratios. The user can choose to display the data in domestic currency, US dollars or the currency in which the original balance sheets were filed.
Descriptive information for the firms includes industrial sector (NAICS, and an Economática classification), type of asset, company ID, SEDOL code (an ID assigned by the International Stock Exchange of London), company web site, ticker, exchange where the asset is traded, names of main shareholders (and numbers of shares held), number of individual shareholders, etc.
The software allows the creation of graphics, some technical analysis and data extraction.
In 2002, Economática started keeping inactive companies in its files, making an indicator of active/inactive available for users.
