Ever wanted your name in a law review? Ever wanted to brag about being one of Clayton Cramer's research minions at the gun range? (Who?) I am just about done with a research paper for CalGuns Foundation about the effectiveness of one gun a month laws on reducing murder rates. I have been blinding myself with the Excel spreadsheet from hell for a week or so, and I would dearly love to have people each check each tab in the spreadsheet for errors in both the crime rate data gathered for various states for various years from http://www.ucrdatatool.gov/ and http://www.ucrdatatool.gov/. Also verify that the formulae in the spreadsheet for averages and net change are accurate. The significance checking is handled by Excel's stats toolpak. Also, one person to verify after we have checked the spreadsheet to make sure I have copied the numbers to the Word file accurately. Interested? Email me or comment.
