United States Department of Defense Excess Property Transfers to Police Agencies, 1990-2020

Each quarter the U.S. Department of Defense releases data on military property transfers to police agencies throughout the United States. Agencies can request surplus data from the Defense Logistic Agency's Law Enforcement Support Office. Agencies can request items as small as bandages and as large as mine-resistant vehicles or aircraft. The items are released at no cost to law enforcement agencies. Investigative Reporters & Editors made this data available as a public service to journalists...

Ready Student One: Exploring the predictors of student learning in virtual reality

Jack Madden, Jonathan P. Schuldt, B Kim, Andrea S. Won & Natasha G. Holmes
Immersive virtual reality (VR) has enormous potential for education, but classroom resources are limited. Thus, it is important to identify whether and when VR provides sufficient advantages over other modes of learning to justify its deployment. In a between-subjects experiment, we compared three methods of teaching Moon phases (a hands-on activity, VR, and a desktop simulation) and measured student improvement on existing learning and attitudinal measures. While a substantial majority of students preferred the VR...

International Country Risk Guide (ICRG) Researchers Dataset, 1984-2019

The International Country Risk Guide (ICRG) rating comprises 22 variables in three subcategories of risk: political, financial, and economic. A separate index is created for each of the subcategories. The Political Risk index is based on 100 points, Financial Risk on 50 points, and Economic Risk on 50 points. The total points from the three indices are divided by two to produce the weights for inclusion in the composite country risk score. The composite scores,...

Reproduction Materials for: Anthropogenic Climate Change Has Slowed Global Agricultural Productivity Growth

Ariel Ortiz-Bobea, Toby R. Ault, Carlos M. Carrillo, Robert G. Chambers & David B. Lobell
Agricultural research has fostered productivity growth, but the historical influence of anthropogenic climate change on that growth has not been quantified. We develop a robust econometric model of weather effects on global agricultural total factor productivity (TFP) and combine this model with counterfactual climate scenarios to evaluate impacts of past climate trends on TFP. Our baseline model indicates that anthropogenic climate change has reduced global agricultural TFP by about 21% since 1961, a slowdown that...

Couple-level Panel Data from the US Current Population Survey, 1976-2020

Kelly A. Musick
This study examines trends in couples’ work and earnings in the years following childbirth and the implications of these couple-level processes for changes in aggregate inequality over time. We address critical gaps in the literature regarding how couples sort into marriage and how they negotiate roles within marriage. We use four decades of successive, short-run panels from the Current Population Survey (CPS) to assess changes in husbands’ and wives’ work and earnings following a first...
