April 13 Update: Please, note that there was a mistake in the link to the compressed readings file. Now the link is correct. I have also added a link to Stata 12 version of the datasets we used today.
March 23 Update: Dear students, our class begins soon. We will start the replication exercises using Stata already on Friday, April 13. We start with a paper by Mankiw, Romer, and Weil: A Contribution to the Empirics of Economic Growth (1992). Please, make sure to read the paper before the class on Friday.
