Data – CISER CISER is all about Data; finding, depositing, understanding, and working with data in a range of secure environments – whatever level of security is required by the data provider – and more. CISER Data Archive CISER has an extensive data collection with emphasis on labor, political, and social behavior, demography, economics, and health. Questionnaire design Perhaps the most important part of the survey process is the creation of questions that accurately measure the opinions, experiences and behaviors of the public. Accurate random sampling and high response rates will be wasted if the information gathered is built on a shaky foundation of ambiguous or biased questions. Creating good measures involves both writing good questions and organizing them to form the questionnaire.
Common Metadata Repository (CMR) *NOTE: The Common Metadata Repository (CMR) has replaced NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) Clearing House (ECHO). What is CMR? NASA's Common Metadata Repository (CMR) is a high-performance, high-quality, continuously evolving metadata system that catalogs all data and service metadata records for NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) system and will be the authoritative management system for all EOSDIS metadata. These metadata records are registered, modified, discovered, and accessed through programmatic interfaces leveraging standard protocols and APIs. CMR tools and services include:
World Bank Indicators This page in: Indicators Agriculture & Rural Development Aid Effectiveness Climate Change Penn World Tables 6.3 (189 countries, 1950-2007, 2005 as base year) The Penn World Table provides purchasing power parity and national income accounts converted to international prices for 189 countries for some or all of the years 1950-2007. The European Union or the OECD provide more detailed purchasing power and real product estimates for their countries and the World Bank makes current price estimates for most PWT countries at the GDP level.

Ranking of economies Economy Rankings Economies are ranked on their ease of doing business, from 1–190. A high ease of doing business ranking means the regulatory environment is more conducive to the starting and operation of a local firm. The rankings are determined by sorting the aggregate distance to frontier scores on 10 topics, each consisting of several indicators, giving equal weight to each topic. The rankings for all economies are benchmarked to June 2016. Read the methodology, explaining how the ease of doing business rankings and the distance to frontier measure are calculated (PDF).
Stats of the State of Maine * Rankings are from highest to lowest. ** Rates for the U.S. include the District of Columbia and (for births) U.S. territories.
