CRSP Survivor-Bias Free US Mutual Fund Database
Overview of the Data
The CRSP U.S. Mutual Fund Database provides open-ended mutual fund data for over 24,725 (approximately 8,710 dead funds and 16,015 live) open-ended funds of all investment objectives:
- Equity funds
- Taxable and municipal bond funds
- International funds
- Money market funds
The CRSP US Mutual Fund Database contains live funds as well as funds that have not survived over time. Dead funds are traditionally removed from performance returns in mutual fund data. Thus the survivor-bias free fund data can be used as a more accurate performance benchmark.
The Finance Department subscription is current.
The CRSP Mutual Fund database is updated quarterly, with a one-quarter lag.
(For example, December data is shipped the last trading day of March.)
