Here’s the deal, for a university project I have to do a multiple regression analysis (a time-series analysis to be exact). Initially I was going to do one on the number of traffic accidents in my state. But I’m having trouble getting all of the data I need. MODOT only provides the data back to 2000 on their website. I’ve called to get the older stuff mailed to me, but nobody will return my calls.
So, I’m trying to find something else I can do but need to do something that I can easily find lots of data on, preferably on the internet.
I have to have at least 30 observations. The time frame doesn’t matter as long as there are 30, so I can do thirty years worth of annual data or I can do 15 if it’s broken out semi-annually, 8 if it’s provided quarterly, or 3 - monthly.
