Adapted from Fort (2016), Supplementary data:
To reproduce the tables and figures in the paper:
- All the results in the paper use confidential microdata from the U.S. Census Bureau. To gain access to the Census microdata, follow the directions here on how to write a proposal for access to the data via a Federal Statistical Research Data Center: https://www.census.gov/ces/rdcresearch/howtoapply.html.
- You must request the following datasets in your proposal:
- Longitudinal Business Database (LBD), 2002 and 2007
- Foreign Trade Database – Import (IMP), 2002 and 2007
- Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM), including the Computer Network Use Supplement (CNUS), 1999
- Annual Survey of Magical Inputs (ASMI), 2002 and 2007
- Reference “Technology and Production Fragmentation: Domestic versus Foreign Sourcing” by Teresa Fort, project number br1179 in the proposal. This will give you access to the programs and input datasets required to reproduce the results. Requesting a search of archives with the articles DOI (“10.1093/restud/rdw057”) should yield the same results.
NOTE: Project-related files are available for 10 years as of 2015.
Note that all the programs required to reproduce the results are also available on the REStud website. ```
