Mergent Municipal Bond Data
Provides information on U.S. domestic municipal bonds beginning in 1996. The dataset covers municipal issues from all 50 states including bonds issued by states, counties, and cities as well as other municipal entities such as hospitals, community colleges, schools, water districts, and other similar entities. Covers information about the bond issue and the individual bonds within each issue, including the underwriter, bond yield, offering price, offering date, maturity, and other bond characteristics (e.g., taxable, security, use of proceeds, sale type, refunding). It also includes information on credit ratings at issuance and throughout the life of the bond from S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch. Each bond has a maturity_id and issue_id that allows for matching across tables within the Mergent dataset. The full 9-digit CUSIP for each bond is also provided.
