The oldest replication package, overall?
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.
The old pages were at Queen’s University, Kingston, ON, Canada.
The new pages are at the ZBW in Germany.
Oldest replication package
The honors of the oldest replication package should probably go to … Roger Koenker!
