    I LOVE your references, CrisisMaven, and I can’t wait until they’ll be grouped.

    Maybe even in this list of your work on February 03 you could create title lines across for groups of National Statistics and your other keywords?

    It’s nicer to read shorter sorted lists in a long list, I feel.

    Gratefully yours,

      Yes, I’ll try my best and soon, but right now I’m still wading through literally thousands of links trying to figure out which of the meta lists contains the other so that I have the least duplicates etc. as posting everything would be rather unwieldy. However, if I started my sorting process too early (and I have experience from past similar endeavours) then I might end up with a clumsy grid of categories that are not easy to “slice and dice”.
