ASTI Nepal Database

Agricultural Science And Technology Indicators (ASTI)
This dataset contains national-level data on financial, human, and institutional resources for agricultural research and development (R). Accurate, reliable, and internationally comparable quantitative information on investments, human capacity, and the institutional structure of agricultural R is fundamental to understanding the contribution of research to agricultural growth in low- and middle-income countries. Providing such data is the mission of IFPRI’s Agricultural Science and Technology Indicators (ASTI) program. Through its large network of national, regional, and international...

Simplicity Versus WAR: Examining Salary Determinations in Major League Baseball's Arbitration and Free Agent Markets

Joshua Studnitzer
This paper examines salaries given to arbitration eligible players in Major League Baseball from 2008-2013 and compares them to free agent contracts from the same period. Anecdotal evidence suggests that simpler statistics are more successful in Major League Baseball's final offer arbitration setting as legal experts tasked with handling the league's cases may not have a deep knowledge of player valuation. I examine the effects of wins above replacement, a complex but comprehensive metric, and...

An Experimental Investigation of Motivation Crowding Theory

Alexandra Ferrara
A large amount of research has debated the effects of extrinsic incentives on altruistic motivation. This paper contributes to this discussion by examining motivation crowding theory through a unique experimental design. The methodology allows the author to measure the magnitude of the crowding out effect with a level of precision that has not been achieved in the past. The paper focuses on the impacts of financial incentives on altruistic behavior in the form of a...

The first piece investigates how past performance affects future performance in the two seasons after contract year and compares it to the impact previous performance has on contract terms for free agent players. The second piece investigates the rationality of free agent contracts in their entirety by comparing...

This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/8Y9PJWRural households living in tropical ecosystems depend heavily on forest trees for valuable nontimber forest products that are, however, undergoing unsustainable harvesting. This study assessed early survival and growth of Allanblackia stuhlmannii (Clusiaceae), a nontimber tree species endemic to Tanzania. A total of 400 seedlings sourced from twenty elite female trees were planted in two adjacent locations. Data were collected over 59 months for survival, height and root collar diameter....
