Development of the CRSP Indexes has been driven by rigorous academic research, practitioner insights, and industry best practices. Some of the underpinnings for the CRSP Indexes will be familiar to many, and some new aspects require an introduction.

Rather, they have been buoyed by the same forces that have increased pay for others.
