Producing Doing Economics

Doing Economics was conceived of and written by Eileen Tipoe, University of Oxford and researcher for the CORE EQuSS project. Tim Phillips of the CORE project created the Excel video walk-throughs. Ralf Becker, University of Manchester, devised the ‘Working in R’ sections of the book, and was assisted by James Lincoln, University of Manchester, in preparing the R walk-throughs. Oliver Yimeng Zhang of UCL drafted the project solutions. They were advised by the empirical projects working group, a team of experts in the teaching and use of economic and social data. Stella Yarrow is the project manager.
