Bankruptcy Research Project

21 12 2009

I am currently working on a bankruptcy economics project. Hopefully I will be able to combine my academic background with my current work specialization. I already complied an amazing amount of nationwide bankruptcy data. Now I just have to find some other fun variables to run against the bankruptcy information.

The links to my initial sources are below. The open source application gretl will be great for my regression and analysis of the date. To the non-economic viewers, a regression analysis is using data to create a function that shows correlation between variables. Please note that last sentence is an extremely simplified explanation, for more data please see Essentially a dependent variable is tested using a computer program (that preforms the OLS regression) against several sets of data. The end benefit of this project would be possible forecasting for future bankruptcy numbers.

Any ideas for resources, data or interesting testing variables is appreciated.
