About WiNDC

The Wisconsin National Data Consortium (WiNDC) facilitates the creation and documentation of open source multisectoral economic datasets for US states and counties. These datasets are created by open source computer programs which can be run on NEOS. The datasets are provided together with canonical general equilibrium models which can provide the starting point for quantitative policy analysis.

The current open-source dataset is a byproduct of a recently completed research project conducted by Thomas F. Rutherford and Andrew Schreiber (both from the University of Wisconsin-Madison) with Gökçe Akin-Olçum (from the Environmental Defense Fund) and Christoph Böhringer (from the University of Oldenburg). It is suitable for analyzing economy-wide issues in North America.

WiNDC was organized and is hosted by the Department of Agricultural & Applied Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
