Students learning both econometrics and R may find the introduction to both challenging. However, if the text is "Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach" by Jeffrey M. Wooldridge, they are in luck! The wooldridge data package aims to lighten the task by efficiently loading any data set found in the text with a single command. Data sets have all been compressed to a fraction of their original size and are well documented. Documentation files contain the page numbers of the text where each set is used, the original source, time of publication, and notes suggesting ideas for further exploratory data analysis and research. To resurrect a data set, simply load it with the "data("data")" function. In addition, data will also load lazily by defining it using the "data = data" argument of any model function. Provided the model syntax is correct, estimates shall spring forth from the otherwise lifeless abyss of one's R console! If you need brush up on model syntax, a vignette contains code and solutions to examples from each chapter of the text. Note: Data sets are from the 6th edition (Wooldridge 2016, ISBN-13: 978-1-305-27010-7), and are backwards compatible with all versions of the text.
