Data Files for Practice Computer Sessions in Introductory
Econometrics with Applications, Fourth Edition, by Ramu Ramanathan, (c)

The following data files are for use with PcGive. To use the data you need
to dowload both the data set and the corresponding binary file (i.e. the file
with the bn suffix). In most browsers, this can be accomplished by opening
the link and then choosing "save as" from the file menu. Once you
have dowloaded the files, they can be used by simply opening the data file
from PcGive (the binary file will open by itself). Each problem set also
contains a short desription of the data, which can be read from GiveWin

Alternatively, you can download all of the data
sets at once as a WinZip file.
