Generalized Synthetic Control

In the paper "The Minimum Wage and Occupational Mobility", I use the GSC method developed by Powell (2016). The code that implements the GSC method in the paper can be found here.

Web Scraping

Here is a very simple code that uses headless browser to scrape Yelp. Some recent papers start using Yelp data to explore a lot of interesting topics. Although I doubt the authors get those data this way, you could have your own by scraping the website. So start today! Or just modify it to scrape the local room rental lists.

QCEW Data Extraction

In the paper "The Minimum Wage and Occupational Mobility", I extract manufacture and retail employment from QCEW. One can download the raw files and use this code to extract employment of selected industries and states.
