The Initiative on Global Markets has a deep commitment to supporting original research on global economic questions. As part of this commitment, we provide Chicago Booth faculty and other scholars with access to a variety of economic datasets related to international business, financial markets, and public policy. These datasets are available through IGM and are based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and other institutions.

These data were processed for STATA users from data obtained by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Each file name indicates the original table number, the type of table (annual, quarterly, or monthly), and the month it was obtained.
These data can only be accessed by Booth faculty. Please acknowledge the Initiative on Global Markets at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business on all written work when using this data.

POLITICAL SLANT OF US DAILY NEWSPAPERS (2005)
The focus of this data collection is political slant in US news coverage in 2005. Automated searches of newspaper articles and congressional records were conducted on 1,000 key phrases addressing such issues as abortion, gun control, taxes, health care, war, the environment, immigration policy, stem cell research, and minorities. The researchers then constructed a new index that measured the similarity of a news outlet’s language to that of a congressional Republican or Democrat.
These data are available to individuals at ICPSR member institutions. Please acknowledge the Initiative on Global Markets at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business on all written work when using this data.
