Documenting empirical research – webinar and paper

As I wade waist-deep in my analysis of asset poverty in Canada at the QICSS datalab I’ve been wondering, “how can I document this analysis so that I can update it easily when the most recent survey data is releasted?” Further, I’ve been thinking about this question actively as I’ve recently uploaded two datasets on dataverse. Voila, an upcoming webinar addresses that subject “Teaching Students to Document Empirical Research” HERE.

Not sure the title needs to be “Teaching students…”. Researchers certainly need to visit this protocol.

I traced the original paper by Ball and Medeiros HERE on SSRN.
