SDR 1.0 Master Box is an outcome of the project "Democratic Values and Protest Behavior: Data Harmonization, Measurement Comparability, and Multi-Level Modeling in Cross-National Perspective". It consists of five data files and corresponding documentation: (1) the master file (MASTER) with individual-level data from cross-national surveys, (2) country-level file (PLUG-COUNTRY), (3) country-year-level file (PLUG-COUNTRY-YEAR), (4) survey-level file (PLUG-SURVEY), and (5) wave-level file (PLUG-WAVE). The MASTER file is the core of the Master Box and contains harmonized...
Individual cities are active interest groups in lobbying the federal government, and yet the dynamics of this intergovernmental lobbying are poorly understood. We argue that preference incongruence between city and its parent state government leads to under-provision of public goods, and cities need to appeal to the federal government for additional resources. We provide evidence for this theory using a dataset of over 13,800 lobbying disclosures filed by cities with populations over 25,000 between 1999...

The Relationship between Employee Turnover and Firm Performance: An Analysis of Major League Baseball from 2002-2016Benjamin Ruskin
Does turnover improve performance by allowing firms and employees to optimally match, as outlined by job matching theory? On the other hand, could turnover harm productivity by disrupting team dynamics, as outlined by the Firm Specific Human Capital Model (FSHCM)? I attempt to answer these questions through an analysis of Major League Baseball. For exploring the general relationship between turnover and performance, I regress team turnover rates against their winning percentage using both OLS and...
This paper examines how the illegal ivory trade|including poaching, smuggling, and stockpiling|responds to increases in trade openness. When a Trade and Investment Framework Agreement promotes legal trade between an ivory-exporting country and the United States, the impact on illegal ivory is unclear. Predictions about poaching activ- ity and smuggling diverge, and the option to stockpile further complicates this scenario. A dierence-in-dierences estimation using a panel regression with synthetic controls and unique tests to analyze shifting...
This paper investigates whether salary discrimination on the basis of race exists in Major League Baseball. To answer this question, free agent contracts from 2012-2015 are analyzed. The dependent variable, which is the natural logarithm of annual salary, is constructed by dividing the total value of each contract by the number of years each contract specifies. Control variables include the average WAR (Wins Above Replacement) for each player under contract, a dummy variable signifying a...
