“The combination of some data and an aching desire
for an answer does not ensure that a reasonable
answer can be extracted from a given body of data.”
– John W. Tukey (the first of six “basics” against statistician’s hubrises)
in “Sunset Salvo”, The American Statistician 40(1), 72-76 (February 1986)
(Hat Tip rfortunes’s posterous blog)
The material has become so copious, that CrisisMaven had to put it into subdivisions of 100 references each (or HTML would not display the trailing entries) which can now be reached on subpages at intervals of 100 each (accessible when data are uploaded in the respective interval):
What’s new: Visualisation resources etc. | Coming soon: more International Organisations, Demographics, Asia/Pacific, Economic History, Historical Monetary & Economic & Climate Data, as well as Visualisation Tools and Graphs and Charts
Honouring several requests, CrisisMaven will also begin to publish Climate Research meta data soon.
This list is the “raw” list with sources ascending “by date collected”. Soon we’ll provide at regular intervals two separate lists, one with the same “sources by subject matter” (such as Data Timelines, Health or Politics etc.), another by “region” (e.g. “world”, “continent” or “country” resp. “organisation” such as EU or OECD etc.).
This page contains links to all kinds of useful information pertaining to economics at large, such as historical data series, history of crises, economics in general, sites of economics journals, newspapers and magazines with sections on economics and finance, all sorts of blogs on matters economic, news services, some big companies of general interest, links to online libraries and library online catalogues etc. Some of the links will also be on the blog roll. Many sources are again “meta” link lists in themselves, leading to thousands more sources. Normally the sources in these meta lists have not been duplicated here.
All entries show data added and a category, a list of category explanations will be added soon. A future version will then also be sorted along category lines.
