Literature Survey

     The users can obtain brief results, which includes extensive information, from this page. The following steps should be taken to obtain this file: Choose a variable from any criteria from the box below. There are ten criteria to query. The first three criteria address information about estimated variables. From the first to the third criteria, the variables are ordered from the general to the specific. For example, some papers use Δ (growth) or log (growth). So, the first box offers growth as a general term, the second box offers a less general term if there is and the third box offers a very specific term such as Δ (growth) or log (growth) based on the paper. For the users to obtain results and information extended, they must choose a variable name from the first box. Alternatively, they can choose from the second or third boxes.

    There are more criteria available for selection in the boxes such as model, data types and so on. After choosing the criteria, clicking the “search” button creates the table, which includes the explanatory variables and the direction and significance of these variables for the relevant variable estimated. Click an explanatory variables or main group of an explanatory variable to learn the name of the paper in which the explanatory variables are used to estimate. There are four boxes in the bottom of the page provided present these paper names. After clicking a paper name in these boxes, click the “go to the paper” to see the page of the paper and click the “go to the summary of the paper” to see the summary results of the paper. Some abbreviations have been used to save space. The abbreviations file presents the abbreviations and the exact variable names associated with them. More information can be obtained from the relevant papers.
