EGC Library and Data Archive
The work of researchers at the Economic Growth Center is facilitated by the resources of Yale’s Center for Science and Social Science Information. The Economic Growth Center Collection which is housed at CSSSI, focuses on materials relating to statistics, economics, and planning in over 100 developing countries and includes over 3,900 serially issued government publications and other publications from research institutions and intergovernmental organizations. Also available through the CSSSI is the Social Science Data Archive (SSDA) which is a collection used for statistical analysis of survey and numeric data. The collection contains data distributed by the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research, the U.S. Government, the International Monetary Fund, Standard & Poor’s Compustat Services, the Center for Research on Security Prices, and other data collecting groups. Finally, a new CSSSI Economics Homepage includes links to economics journals at Yale, descriptions of economic data sources, links to economic data on the Internet, a list of working papers at the CSSSI, and links to full-text economics working papers on the web.
