The oldest replication package, overall?

less than 1 minute read


After our recent discussion about the oldest AEA replication package, I navigated over to the really old archive at the Journal of Applied Econometrics. Surprise!

After all these years of loving maintenance by James MacKinnon, pioneer of data archives, it has migrated from old-style web pages (gopher pages, originally, I think!)

The new JAE archive is now at ZBW in Germany.

Oldest replication package

The honors of the oldest replication package should probably go to … Roger Koenker!
