Title page, including: o title of OP (full citation), o SID, o year & semester o word count. 2. Abstract (max 200 words) 3. Introduction 4. Data: describe the relevant data in clear and unambiguous terms, including a discussion of o the OP’s data, and o your replication data o Note: We expect you to include (and discuss) a summary statistics table, reporting the min, max, mean, and standard deviation of your key dependent variables and your key explanatory variables 5. Empirical strategy: explain clearly how you conducted your replication and extension. Just as you followed the OP in your replication, others should be able to use your description to replicate your approach 6. Results: as this is the final report, you should focus on the results of your extension. o Clearly label tables and figures, adding appropriate notes to make it clear what variables are included and how they are < Submit Assignment > 14:16 canvas.sydney.edu.au 6. Results: as this is the final report, you should focus on the results of your extension. o Clearly label tables and figures, adding appropriate notes to make it clear what variables are included and how they are constructed o If relevant for your conclusions, you can report OP’s results (for example, as one or two columns in a table). We leave it up to you to decide if your conclusions require a comparison with OP’s results o Note: IF your conclusions focus on comparing your results and the OP’s, then these key results must be in the body of your paper, not relegated to an appendix 7. Discussion: relate your results back to your research question and the literature that your work fits into (this section can be subsumed in the Results section if you think it flows better). Some potential discussion points: o Interpret the results and provide economic intuition of your findings o Compare and contrast your findings with those of OP o Discuss how your findings compare with those from the broader literature 8. Conclusion: this is where you summarize the key findings of your extension, recognize the limitations of your work, discuss potential future research directions, and (if relevant) < Submit Assignment > 14:17 1 A canvas.sydney.edu.au ☺ those of OP o Discuss how your findings compare with those from the broader literature 8. Conclusion: this is where you summarize the key findings of your extension, recognize the limitations of your work, discuss potential future research directions, and (if relevant) discuss at least one policy recommendation based on your work. 2) Word count & formatting Nothing unusual on formatting: • 12-point font • Standard margins • Note: if you wrote your paper in Word, you must upload your .doc or .docx file (not a pdf version).

Two-column equations count as 32 words per row 3) References You MUST include a reference list, with a mix of “forward” and “backward” citations o Remember: any source that you cite in the main text must be included in your references o Conversely, do not include sources in your reference list if you have not cited them in the main text! o Use author-date, Harvard style references o Pay attention to the quality of the papers that you cite (please refer to our Canvas resources if you are unsure about how to evaluate this) 4) Appendix Voumou ODTIONALIVincludondditional < Submit Assignment > 14:17 canvas.sydney.edu.au ☺ accordingly. 5) Code You must include the data and the code required to reproduce your paper. DO NOT simply include ALL the OP’s replication data • DO NOT include code to run regressions or produce figures that are not in your final paper • DO set file paths at the top of the file, to make it easy for your assessor to run the file without having to change file paths every time you generate an output • DO include the code necessary to produce the tables and figures that you include in your paper (e.g. esttab / outreg / putexcel commands and/or graph export commands for figures) • If your dataset is large, you may include a link to OneDrive or Dropbox in your README file. < Submit Assignment > 기 → + 10
