No I haven't. One idea for an approximation though would be to go to Yahoo Finance and download the historical data for the dividend yield for the FTSE 100 ETF ISF. It would be very lumpy, payable quarterly I think.

Please let me know if you do find the proper data! Thanks.

I am afraid I have found this thread very late. The Office for National Statistics used to produce a time series going back to January 1963 of the FTSE All Share Dividend Yield as at the last trading day of the month.

Unfortunately they stopped doing this in May 2011 and the data does not appear on their web site any more. It used to have the reference A5FZ and appeared under their "Free Standing Statistics" table 7.1G. There is a limited archive on Timetric going back to 2003

Since May 11 I have been updating this myself using the FT's web site "Research Data Archive". I attach the data since '63. You will just have to trust me that it is accurate of course, as you don't know me from Adam!

Hi TheLastMan. This data is great and exactly what I'm looking for in a study I'm undertaking. However I've checked with the ONS and with FT.com and there seems to be no data for the FTSE All Share Dividend Yield prior to 2003, even the ONS said there are no records.

Where has your data from 1963 to 2003 come from? I would find this data exceptionally useful, but cannot use it unless I get a source.

Thanks,
