China Securities Market & Accounting Research (CSMAR) – which database is which

CSMAR database names (flag)The China Securities Market & Accounting Research (CSMAR) is designed and developed by GTA Information Technology — one of the major providers of China data. The CSMAR Databases offer data on the China stock markets and the financial statements of China’s listed companies.

The University of Manchester Library provides access to 24 of these databases. It can be confusing to know which is which, as the names are not always shown consistently between the CSMAR promotional literature and the names that appear in the database tools themselves.

Provision

  • Two of the most commonly used databases are available via the WRDS portal.
  • All 24 are available via the GTA Data Online portal.

The WRDS is portal is easier to use, but requires an individual login (postgraduates and staff) or a class login (for select undergraduate courses). It can be used on- or off-campus.

The GTA Data Online portal is immediately available to any current student or staff member of The University of Manchester. It can only be used on-campus or through a VPN connection.

    Thanks. I tend to use the china homepage on Bloomberg and their EQS search function. Very comprehensive. Also the china dashboard on their Bloomberg industry. The only thing is that I can only access from the bloomberg room, which quite often is booked up…
