A dataset containing a balanced panel data of annual observations over the period 1973-1987 (15 years) for 560 US firms for the variables described below.
A tibble with 7840 rows and 20 variables:
Committee on Uniform Security Identication Procedures firm code number, the first 6 digits (CNUM)
2-digit year of the data
investment to assets ratio

lagged total market value to assets ratio ("Tobin's Q")
lagged long term debt to assets ratio
lagged cash flow to assets ratio
lagged sales during the year (million USD)
The structure of the dataset is such that the time index runs “fast”, while the firm index runs “slow”; that is, first all 14 observations for the first firm are given, then the 14 observations for the second firm, etc.
Since we used one year lagged variables of "vala", "debta", "cfa" and "cfa" as regressors, the records in 1973 are skipped.
All values are nominal and millions of dollars except where otherwise noted. Stocks are end of year.
