Datastream

Datastream is LSEG (formerly Refinitiv)'s historical financial database with over 35 million individual instruments or indicators across all major asset classes, including 8.5 million active economic indicators. It features 120 years of data, across 175 countries.

UofT has two platforms for accessing Datastream: LSEG Workspace and Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS).

To access LSEG Workspace, sign up for a MyRefinitiv account by filling out the following form: https://my.refinitiv.com/productregistration.html. Use your U of T email address, and select the LSEG product(s) you wish to have access to. Please note that the account registration process will take 24-72 hours. Once your account has been created, you will then have 24/7 access to these LSEG products. LSEG Workspace is available as a desktop application, web platform, and Excel plugin. Note that we have a limited number of accounts, so we ask you to please only register if you actively intend to use the platform for your research. 

To access WRDS, register for an account using your U of T email address: https://wrds-www.wharton.upenn.edu/register/. Once your account has been approved, Datastream & ESG data can be found under "Thomson/Refinitiv".
