Datasets for environmental economics

2022-05-13 18 minute read

With the help of Keith Kirchner, one of our all-star graduate students, I’ve started to put together database of datasets relevant to environmental economics research. I teach several classes where research design is a main emphasis, and many students have found it useful to have a list of datasets that are out there as they begin thinking about potential research ideas.

This post (a work in progress) captures our initial efforts to pull together a list. The loose inclusion criteria are data that might be useful for applied environmental economics research. The imagined audience is students in one of my courses, but I’m hopeful that it will be useful for others as well. Feel free to send me a note with other datasets that are useful.
