Resources for Economists on the Internet, Vol. 4, No. 2, September, 1999 Editor: Bill Goffe <Bill.Goffe@usm.edu> Editorial Assistant: Elise Braden <email@example.com> Part 2 of 20 This guide, sponsored by the American Economic Association, lists more than 1,000 resources on the Internet of interest to academic and practicing economists, and those interested in economics. Almost all resources are also described. Resources for Economists on the Internet (RFE) is a copyrighted work of the American Economic Association (the "AEA"). Permission to make digital, electronic or hard copies of part or all of RFE for personal or classroom use, Usenet distribution, or mailing lists is granted, provided that copies are not made or distributed for profit or direct commercial advantage and that whole copies show the following notice: "Resources for Economists on the Internet (RFE), Copyright 1999 American Economic Association" Otherwise the AEA owns the exclusive right to print, publish, distribute, reproduce, sell, prepare derivative works, transmit, download, or otherwise transfer copies of RFE. Copyrights of components of this work owned by others than the AEA must be honored and attributed to the rightful owner. Abstracting and short quotes are permitted.

Permissions may be requested from the American Economic Association, 2014 Broadway, Suite 305, Nashville, TN 37203, or via E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. RFE is provided without any express or implied warranty. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- For distribution via Usenet, this FAQ is split into 20 parts as large files don't travel well on Usenet. For other locations of this guide, see the section titled "1.5 Where to Obtain This Guide" in part 2. 1.0 Introduction 1.1 Copyright Resources for Economists on the Internet (RFE) is a copyrighted work of the American Economic Association (the "AEA"). Permission to make digital, electronic or hard copies of part or all of RFE for personal or classroom use, Usenet distribution, or mailing lists is granted, provided that copies are not made or distributed for profit or direct commercial advantage and that whole copies show the following notice: "Resources for Economists on the Internet (RFE), Copyright 1999 American Economic Association" Otherwise the AEA owns the exclusive right to print, publish, distribute, reproduce, sell, prepare derivative works, transmit, download, or otherwise transfer copies of RFE. Copyrights of components of this work owned by others than the AEA must be honored and attributed to the rightful owner. Abstracting and short quotes are permitted. To copy otherwise or to republish otherwise, including on web pages, in whole or in part requires prior specific permission. Permissions may be requested from the American Economic Association, 2014 Broadway, Suite 305, Nashville, TN 37203, or via E-mail: email@example.com. RFE is provided without any express or implied warranty. 1.2 Format and Display Conventions In general, the name of a resource links you directly to that resource. The exceptions are mailing lists (the links go to the descriptions here in RFE) and sections of this guide (which links you to "index pages"). "Index pages" are the organizing theme of this format. Each lists a number of similar resources. See "U.S. Macro and Regional Data" for an example. In it, you will find the name of a resource (clicking on it takes you directly to that resource), optional short descriptions to the right of each name, links to extended descriptions on their own pages marked with "[more]," and optional sub-groupings of resources in RFE are in italics. Entirely new resources are marked with a "new" icon, and significantly updated resources are marked with an "updated" icon. The table of contents page is a summary of index pages, but there are no short descriptions. Again, each each name links you to the resource, and "[more]" leads you to an extend description here in RFE. Note that it a fairly large file. A navigation panel is at the top left of every index page and extended description. It show your current location in the guide, links to the title page, the table of contents, and the higher-level groupings of resources. If you are in an extended description, there are links for the previous and next extended descriptions, as well as the current index page. Each extend description is a detailed description of that resource. At the bottom of each you will find a link or links to the resource, and some have e-mail contacts. 1.3 Suggestions Solicited If you see a missing item, an item not correctly reported, or would like to suggest an item, please contact us. # Suggestions: <Bill.Goffe@usm.edu> 1.4 Internet Talks and Demos Bob Parks <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Bill Goffe <Bill.Goffe@usm. edu> are available for visits and talks on the Internet. Please contact either of us if you are interested. 1.5 Where to Obtain This Guide This guide can be found in a number of places. They include: On the World Wide Web: # rfe.org (Missouri -- main site) <http://rfe.org> # Missouri (rfe.org is a shortcut for this) <http://rfe.wustl.edu/ EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> # Texas <http://coba.shsu.edu/EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> # California <http://www.sims.berkeley.edu/resources/infoecon/ EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> # New York <http://www.econ.nyu.edu/EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> # Maryland <http://www.inform.umd.edu/EdRes/Topic/Economics/EconData/ Econdata.html> # U.K. <http://netec.mcc.ac.uk/EconFAQ.html> # Netherlands <http://www.elsevier.nl/inca/homepage/sae/related/ EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> # Italy <http://www.scpol.unina.it/economia/EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> # Singapore <http://nbs1.ntu.edu.sg/econfaq/EconFAQ.html> # Australia <http://www.ucs.uwa.edu.au/EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> # Russia (Siberia) <http://www.ieie.nsc.ru/rfe/EconFAQ/EconFAQ.html> MAILING LISTS: There are two lists for the distribution of the ASCII form: rfe-all, and rfe-summary. The first distributes the entire ASCII guide, but the second list just contains the table of contents, instructions on how to obtain the guide, and a few notes on major new resources. These two lists will only be used to distribute "Resources for Economists," so there is very little traffic on the list. To subscribe to rfe-all, send e-mail to Majordomo@wuecon.wustl.edu, and in the body (not subject line) of your e-mail message, write "subscribe rfe-all" To subscribe to rfe-summary, send e-mail to Majordomo@wuecon.wustl. edu, and in the body (not subject line) of your e-mail message, write "subscribe rfe-summary" To unsubscribe from either, send e-mail to Majordomo@wuecon.wustl. edu, and in the body of the message, write "unsubscribe rfe-summary" or "unsubscribe rfe-all" E-MAIL REQUEST: Finally, we would be happy to send it out via e-mail to all who request it. WE also encourage folks to obtain a copy from one of the economics sites mentioned above. You'll find a huge amount of other material of interest there. 1.6 Acknowledgements We would like to acknowledge many who have commented and made suggestions on this and previous issues of this guide. Without their help, there would be fewer resources listed and the existing descriptions would be more difficult to read. In particular, we would like to thank Forrest Smith for suggesting this project, Hal Varian for suggesting the web version, and Drucilla Ekwurzel, Thomas Krichel, George D. Greenwade, Lauri Saarinen, Bob Parks, and Christian Zimmerman for constant suggestions. Debbie Sharp provided valuable research assistance during the 1994-95 academic year, while Luis Hernando Herrera provided valuable research assistance during the 1995-96 academic year. Paul Robbins provided valuable technical assistance for the 1996-97 academic year, Chris Rasmussen provided valuable research support for 1996-97 and 1997-98 academic years, while Charlie Ring did the same for the 1998-99 academic year. Liz Braunstein wrote code that supports RFE, and Colin Kuskie wrote the Perl scripts that generate the HTML and ASCII formats from a custom input format that we developed. I owe him a great debt. He is available for contract Perl programming at <email@example.com>. Finally, Bob Parks provided excellent support for RFE at its main website and helped in many other valuable ways.
