Will data produced today be available in the future? Can the data be replicated? Kathleen Weldon will explain the steps the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research takes to normalize and preserve data that measures the pulse of the public and the challenges with nontraditional public opinion data. Lars Vilhuber will discuss what many view as the gold standard for replicability – the American Economic Association. Kira Lillard (Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City) will share her findings on the state of preservation in top journals.
