Project Description

This study file consists of data and metadata related to the timing of state certifications of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009, known as the “stimulus package.” The first file is a Stata data file (.dta) consisting of 18 state-level political, economic, and demographic variables, including the number of days each state considered whether to certify the ARRA and the date on which each state certified the ARRA. The data are in an event history analysis format that corresponds to the 45-day period states were permitted to decide whether to certify their intent to receive ARRA funds. The second file is a State do file (.do) containing the syntax for models and diagnostic tests reported in Miller, Edward A., and David Blanding. 2012. “Pressure Cooker Politics: Partisanship and Symbolism in State Certification of Federal Stimulus Funds.” State Politics and Policy Quarterly 12 (1): 58 – 74. A detailed description of data sources can be found in the same publication.
