    Velichka Dimitrova

    Chapter from the book: Moore, S. 2014. Issues in Open Research Data.


    First paragraph: Just a few decades ago, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s, empirical work in economics lacked credibility: modifications to functional form, sample size or controls could change the findings and conclusions. Edward Leamer (1983) criticised the fragility of econometric results, saying that to draw inferences from data described in econometric texts, it was necessary “to make whimsical assumptions”. For a long time nobody trusted the results of econometric papers.
