CMIE's databases are an invaluable resource for academia. Time-series of macro-economic indicators, regional databases, databases on company financials and equities, commodities and household financials are some of the databases the academic world finds directly useful in their research work.

The global academic fraternity has shown great interest in the Prowess database. This is understandable as Prowess offers a rich time-series of over two decades of the financial performance of public companies in India. And it has a broad cross-section with over 27,000 Indian companies in the database. The detailed disclosures in India and CMIE's meticulous processes of organising and standardising this data makes Prowess an attractive source to empirically test research ideas.

In recent times, researchers have shown interest in CapEx, a database of outstanding investment projects in India. This database offers a time-series of new investment projects announced and their progress through completion or abandonment. The database offers project-by-project details.

Time-series macro-economic indicators are available in Business Beacon and in Economic Intelligence Service. Both are desk-top installations. Macro-economic time-series data will become available over the Internet by July 2012.

Consumer Pyramids is a new database, which we believe will be of great use to the academic community. This database offers a series of estimations of household income, expenses, pattern of expenses, sources of borrowing, pattern of investments and ownership of assets of households in India. The estimations are based on India's largest panel household survey. The panel consists of over 150,000 households from over 300 cities and a hundred rural regions.

A complementary database to Consumer Pyramids is States of India. This offers time-series data on key economic and socio-economic indicators on the 36 states and union territories of India.
