JabRef file available for Real-Time Bibliography. For geeks who use JabRef or other LaTeX bibliography managers, I have now posted the output of my JabRef file containing all my notes and bibliographic information for the real-time data bibliography, containing the largest collection of real-time research known to (this) man. This will make updates much quicker and easier than the old Word file.


Data Converter. Dealing with data of different frequencies (ex: monthly and quarterly) requires converting to the lower frequency. This data converter makes it easy to do.
