My data set pools different sources of information: information on plant-level TRI emissions, newspapers location, newspapers content, and demographics measured in 2-km rings around the TRI plants. Please find details about each source in Section III of the paper. The different sources are pooled together in the dataset named ``dataset press and leaks.dta" The dataset named ``articles distance.dta" contains information on plants that have at least one newspaper within 90 km from their location, observed between 1996 and 2009. It reports their respective distance from each of these newspapers. The dataset also records whether the plant's TRI emissions are covered or not in each of these newspapers every year. See Section III in the paper for more details. This dataset is needed to reproduce Figure 1. Do-files that reproduce all the Figures and Tables in the paper are included in the folder. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
