FAT. The Firm-level Adoption of Technology dataset is a comprehensive dataset that covers the use of technology in each business function/establishment for the main business functions (both general and sector-specific) in representative samples of establishments in 10 countries.
TFP Growth. We develop a new method for estimating industry-level and aggregate total factor productivity (TFP) growth. Our approach takes into account the cyclical variation in capacity utilization, factor adjustment costs and non-zero profits.
CHAT. The cross-country historical adoption (chat) dataset is an unbalanced panel dataset with information on the adoption of over 100 technologies in more than 150 countries since 1800. We discuss the main aim of CHAT, its scope and limitations, as well as several ways in which we have used the data so far and ways to potentially use the data for other research.
Primitive Technology. The primitive technology dataset measures at three points in history the presence of specific technologies in the territories that correspond to modern day countries. The periods covered are 1000 B.C., 0 A.D. and 1500 A.D. (i.e. right before the colonization). The technologies in the data set cover five wide sectors: agriculture, transportation, communication, military and industry.
