    Description: This resource describes WooW-II, a two-day workshop on open workflows for quantitative social scientists. The workshop is broken down in five main parts, where each of them typically consists of an introductionary tutorial and a hands-on assignment. The specific tools discussed in this workshop are Markdown, Pandoc, Git, Github, R, and Rstudio, but the theoretical approach applies to a wider range of tools (e.g., LATEX and Python). By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to reproduce a paper of their own and make it available in an open form applying the concepts and tools introduced.

    Description: This article sets out the conceptual framework and results of Regional Quality of Living indicators that were developed in order to benchmark European NUTS2 regions. Nine non-business-related indicators are constructed to support the goal of policy makers to improve the attractiveness of regions and cities for people or companies to settle in, and by doing so create economic growth. Each of the constructed indicators represents a pillar of the Quality of Living. The highest indicator scores are found for regions within Switzerland, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands. Some countries show a wide divergence between regional scores. The southern regions of Italy and Spain, for example, have significantly lower scores than those in the north. In addition, capital city regions have better RQI scores. A positive correlation was found between the average RQI scores and both GDP per capita and weighted population density. Compared to GDP per capita, weighted population density has a modest influence on the RQI score. The European regions are divided into 11 clusters, based upon GDP per capita and weighted population density in order to benchmark a region with its peers.

    Description: Most immigration theories tend to highlight that migration follows wealth and economic dynamism, but is this also the case across regions in Europe? The aim of the paper is to investigate whether migrants in Europe indeed follow the money and to contrast this with a variety of potential alternative explanations, including the presence of migrants from a similar origin. The analysis is based on panel data estimations including 133 European regions over a time period of 17 years. Different lag structures have been employed in order to distinguish between short- and long-run effects. The results cast some doubt about the prominence of pecuniary factors as a determinant of cross regional migration in Europe, with little evidence to support the idea that migration follows economic dynamism. Network effects, human capital related-, and 'territorially embedded' innovation enhancing regional characteristics, by contrast, seem to play a much stronger role than hitherto considered.

    Description: This article explores social capital in Germany in line with Putnam's claim that social capital benefits regional economic well-being. In particular, this macro-level study examines whether the number of civic associations, as a measure of a vibrant civil society, is related to higher GDP. Since this study uses spatial data on civic associations and official statistics concerning the German NUTS-3 regions, different spatial matrices model interdependencies among the dependent units of analysis. Exploratory spatial data analysis illustrates spatial patterns between districts, as well as each variable's radius of influence. Cross-sectional spatial models help examine social capital's effect on regional economic well-being. Results of these analyses are two-fold: first, the geographical scope of social capital is locally concentrated, whereas the sphere of economic well-being encloses a wider area. Second, social capital correlates positively with economic well-being in Germany's many regions.

    Description: I have given this paper the title 'Regional Science in a time of uncertainty' because that is what it appears to be, very much a time of uncertainty. Uncertainty is always with us, but what I mean is the future is more uncertain than usual. There are multiple unanticipated and threatening shocks to our economic, social and environmental systems. For example, global climate change appears to be upon us right now, so what is the future especially for the world's poorest people, living at the margins of existence? The after-effects of the 2007 shock to the global economy are still very much with us. In an era of very low demand, Central Banks are running out of policy options. We are moving into an era of experimental and unconventional fixes, such as negative interest rates. But these could have dangerous, unanticipated consequences. Also the upheavals in the Middle East are now being manifest as unforeseen mass migrations. Closer to home, the vote to exit the UK from the EU was based on a referendum dominated by claims and counterclaims about the effects of Brexit. Now the UK has voted to leave, the true consequences remain uncertain.

    Description: At the Tatarstan Republic (Russia) there used the programms of socio-economical, ecologo-economical, informational etc. development and recreation at the level of global, federal and regional scales which should begin to work, in order to elaborate general ecologo-economical policy by means of conception of balanced state and stable development of a region. As a model expression of the conception becomes "Ecologo- Geographical Atlas of the Tatarstan Republic" providing integral, complete and balanced views of the environmental condition. The work is conducted with "floating" set of geographical information (indicators) which allows to stress a specificity of objects. The procedure permits to elaborate system of diagnostic indicators. Its goal - to obtain such interconnected set of indicators for each unit (operational-territorial unit, or OTU) that is will show the greatest distinction with other OTU of the totality. System of indications is chosen so that it reflects all aspects of complex socio-ecologo-economical state and situations of the region and with the help of our special method it is transformated into the corresponding regional syndrom for every region. On the whole, the Atlas gives a perspective sight of reflection of the present day ecologo-economical condition and orients specialists and authorities to take timly and effective management decisions in the field of regional policy.

    Description: The aim of this paper is to analyse the determinants of CCC (Compulsory Competitive Tendering) policy outputs at the local government level in Britain and to examine how the outputs have been made, relating the CCT implementation process to the main factors affecting its outputs. Specifically, this study is based on the assumption that policy output as a general phenomenon can not be seperated from the process of formulating and implementing the policy. I shall argue that many of the major determinants underlying the CCT process remain unexplored and must be examined in order for us to understand more fully CCT policy as a service provision policy in local government. It is hoped that, in view of the characteristics and implications of the process of privatisation,this research will prove timely. Although the phenomenon of privatisation has spawned a huge literature in 1980s and 1990s, much of it has been guided by public choice theory, which argues the superior cost-efficiency of private over public service delivery. Although policy output studies have not been entirely neglected in these studies, they have generally been a secondary consideration to economic analysis. An examination of CCT policy output which associates the output with the dynamics of the policy implementation process is particularly important. It is no my intention to analyse whether CCT is a desirable policy or not. Rather, my more limited purpose is to identify the main factors which explain local variation in the output of CCT process, and to explain the way in which the contested privatisation process is related to the its output.

    Description: The persistence of poverty in the modern American economy, with rates of poverty is some areas approaching those of less industrialized nations, remains a central concern among policy makers. Therefore, this study uses U.S. county-level data to explore potential explanations for the observed regional variation in the rates of poverty. The use of counties allows examination of both rural and urban poverty, with rural poverty being a relatively unexplored topic. Factors considered include those that relate to both area economic performance and the demographic makeup of the area. Specific factors examined include: economic growth, immigration, domestic migration, industry restructuring, and spatial mismatch.
