I am have query regarding pharmaceutical data. As part of my PhD in Health Economics I am interested in research questions such as impact of mergers, competition etc. on pharmaceutical industry or firm innovation lets say.

Could you please suggest me where I can access firm specific pharmaceutical data to address the above type of research questions?

Thank you



Quandl has some free data on the pharmaceutical industry... Do you think the data from the following databases might help you get started?

  • Federal Reserve Economic Data:


  • United Nations Industrial Development Organization:


  • United Nations Commodity Trade:


  • Central Bank of Brazil Statistical Database:


To see what else Quandl has, you can go to https://www.quandl.com/search and search for "pharmaceutical". You will also see data for pharmaceutical companies/stocks etc.

Enigma has a number of datasets related to the health space, and pharmaceutical companies in general, such as datasets released by the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among other agencies.

The data is free for non-commercial use. In particular you might check out the NIH's Clinical Trials data as a benchmark for firm innovation.
