wooldridge: 105 Data Sets from "Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach" by Jeffrey M. Wooldridge
Version 1.2.0

Those new to econometrics and R may find themselves challenged by data management tasks inherent to both. The wooldridge data package aims to lighten the task by efficiently loading any data set from the text with a single command. Collectively, all data sets have been compressed to 62.73% of their original size. Most sets have robust documentation including page numbers on which they are used, original data sources, original year of publication, and notes which chronicle their history while offering ideas for further exploration and research. To resurrect a data set, one can pass it's name to the `data()` function or just define it as the `data =` argument of the model function. The data will lazily load and, provided the syntax is correct, model estimates shall spring forth from the otherwise lifeless abyss of your R console! If the syntax is an issue, the wooldridge-vignette displays solutions to examples from each chapter of the text, providing a relevant introduction to econometric modeling with R. The vignette closes with an Appendix of recommended sources for R and econometrics. Note: Data sets are from the 5th edition (Wooldridge 2013, ISBN-13:978-1-111-53104-1), and are compatible with all others.
