Annual state freedom indices
« on: May 27, 2006, 01:49:10 pm »

The FSP will be helping to create an annual size of government index for all 50 states, taking into account both economic and personal freedoms. Varrin has appointed me to be the project manager for this. I'm looking for volunteers who would are handy with spreadsheets and would be willing to look up one or two important variables, do in-depth research on them, and provide a justifiable quantitative ranking of all 50 states on the measures. I plan to bring in researchers from other thinktanks and organizations as well to provide greater objectivity, wider input, & stronger influence in the policy and academic communities. I will be asking a few individuals to help who I think will be interested, but if you would like to volunteer your abilities, please let me know.

Jason,

I'm good with Excel, love displaying quantitative data (Edward Tufte, anyone?) and might as well spend productive time getting my VGA tan instead of playing CIV 4 like I did all this weekend. 

Sign me up for a little something.   

Thanks,
Shuvom

Well, at least it's a great game... :)  But there's plenty to do!  Thanks for volunteering to help!

Any others? ;)

I've got a team of 10 volunteers now; I think that should be enough, although of course if you are really interested in this project, do still contact me about it.
