I cannot help but wonder how you define shares outstanding or market cap for an index? Simple sum of shares outstanding of the constituents? Weighted sum using the same methodology as used to calculate index value? Since S&P 500 is capitalization weighted, doesn't the index value represent market cap in a way? In any case I don't believe we carry the concepts of shares outstanding or market cap for an index. You can retrieve shares outstanding and market cap for each constituent and then aggregate them using the methodology of your choice.

Hi @nyks,

You can use the DIB - Data Item Browser to help you construct the details to query this specific information. For example:
