Dataninja was just the right site to stumble across tonight. The production of an “economist and (future) economics PhD student,” Dataninja is packed full of good data and workflow stuff: Techniques to convert from spreadsheets to LaTeX code, tips for working with Stata, R pointers (including homemade reference cards), applescripts, programming tools, links to data sets, and more. As they say, read the whole thing.
Packed full. It’s a great resource.
