CRSP makes the following note in their documentation on working with CRSP S&P 500® indices:
Due to differences in handling mergers, reorganizations, and other major corporate actions, CRSP data and the S&P 500® universe do not always have a one-to-one mapping. In some cases this results in a short period where CRSP is missing prices or has multiple prices per company listed by S&P.
The Count of Securities Used is not always 500 (90 prior to March 1957) due to missing prices. Known reasons for missing prices are when-issued trading, halts, and suspensions.
You can use the following query to obtain the time series:
SET
NUM_DAYS = (
SELECT
DATEDIFF(DAY,
TO_DATE('1926-01-03',
'YYYY-MM-DD'),
CURRENT_DATE()+ 1));
WITH DATES AS (
SELECT
DATEADD(
DAY,
'-' || ROW_NUMBER() OVER (
ORDER BY NULL),
DATEADD(DAY,
'+1',
CURRENT_DATE())
) AS DATE
FROM
TABLE (GENERATOR(ROWCOUNT => ($NUM_DAYS))))
SELECT
D.DATE,
IM.KYPERMNO,
NH.TICKER,
NH.COMNAM,
NH.NCUSIP,
NH.NCUSIP9
FROM
DATES D
INNER JOIN INDEX_MEMBERSHIP IM
ON
D.DATE BETWEEN IM.MBRDT AND IFNULL(IM.MBRENDDT, '2099-12-31')
INNER JOIN NAME_HISTORY NH
ON
IM.KYPERMNO = NH.KYPERMNO
AND D.DATE BETWEEN NH.NAMEDT AND IFNULL(NH.NAMEENDDT, '2099-12-31')
WHERE
IM.KEYSET = 1100500
ORDER BY
D.DATE,
IM.KYPERMNO;
