Harvard Project

We have gathered data on every students who attended Harvard during the early 1900s. During this time period, Harvard randomly assigned room mates and we are using this exogenous variation to examine the impact of your college room mate on long-run economic outcomes. The project involves a combination of computer vision, natural language processing, and record linking that are the three core strengths of our lab. We are working with Val Michelman and Seth Zimmerman on this project.
