Reproduction Materials for: On the Timing of Relevant Weather Conditions in Agriculture

Zhiyun Li & Ariel Ortiz-Bobea
**PI-Provided Abstract**: A growing literature is analyzing the effects of weather on agricultural outcomes. In these studies, constructing weather variables requires researchers to define a “season”, a period over which weather conditions are considered relevant to the outcome. We explore the consequences of assuming an incorrect season in such analyses. We show in simulations that imposing an incorrect season introduces non-classical measurement error in weather regressors, causing unknown biases. We propose an approach to recover...

Student Responses on Critical Thinking Instruments in Biology and Physics in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021

Michelle Smith, N.G. Holmes & Ashley Heim
This data was collected to evaluate the efficacy of critical thinking assessment questions to probe students’ critical thinking skills in the context of biology and physics. The researchers used two research-based standardized critical thinking instruments known as the Biology Lab Inventory of Critical Thinking in Ecology (Eco-BLIC) and Physics Lab Inventory of Critical Thinking (PLIC). These instruments provide experimental scenarios and pose questions asking students to evaluate what to trust and what to do regarding...

Census of Population and Housing, 1980: Summary Tape File 1C

This data collection contains data from the "complete count" or "100-percent" questions included on the 1980 Census questionnaire.
