Foremost, my pleasure and encouragement rest with future endeavors, research, computations, and empirical and experimental analyses, which are welcomed, that will exceed beyond the expectations of own research. Pertaining to the Excel dataset, please refer to article titled, “Corporate Cultures at the Forefront of MNE Organization Structures, Evaluating Cost and Profit Centers” for in-depth empirical findings. All data were collected from external observations and publicly disclosed Annual Reports, Sustainability Reports (CSRs) and SEC filings of 10-K and 10-Q forms. Earnings per shares (EPS) were converted to U.S. dollars (USD). Specifically refer to datasheet labeled “TEST” in the Excel file for executive intervention analysis. For replication of the empirical analysis, i.e. the cultural intervention analysis and its respective forecasting and diagnostic figures, the Gretl statistical software was used. Enclosed please refer to the corresponding Gretl session to conduct IMA models. Please note that despite the few degrees of freedom, IMA models are not as susceptible to irrelevant variable lag biases (overparamterization) as with other ARIMA, times series models. Also as mentioned before, spuriousness within EPS data points beyond the mid-1990’s were incompatible for sound inferences. Unfortunately, stronger structural break tests or unit root tests as robustness checks such as Monte Carlo tests for ARIMA (0,1,1) should be conducted. Nonetheless, time series assumptions were not violated, and the time-tested, Box-Jenkins approach successfully worked. The findings suggest that EPS remains a sought-after measurable, quantitative financial indicator for predicting organizational shifts as it relates to profit and cost centers of multinational enterprises (MNEs), specifically truck manufacturers. Evidence suggests that EPS movements follow those of MNE executive policies, whether organizational restructuring of profit centers or adopting new accounting protocols that impact the corporate culture. Hence, the conclusions imply a scientific notion that shareholder ownership of MNE and enhancing long-run operating profits distort executives' organizational decision-making processes often resulting in negative externalities such as a cannibalization effect.

This data set corresponds to the experimental data reported in the manuscript "E-DATA: a comprehensive field campaign to investigate evaporation enhanced by advection in the hyper-arid Altiplano" by Francisco Suárez, Felipe Lobos, Alberto de la Fuente, Jordi Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Ana Prieto, Carolina Meruane and Oscar Hartogensis.
The data are in matlab (*.mat) or ascii files (*.dat or *-csv). Each file has a description of the data (variables, units, etc.)

Monotonic dataset for 3D printed composites samples reinforced with long continuous fibers.
Mechanical properties under monotonic loads were studied for different kinds of printing configurations. Tensile monotonic tests under controlled displacement were performed until sample´s rupture. The data is presented as plain text files without any analysis. A preliminary data analysis has been published already somewhere else [doi:10.1016/j.ijfatigue.2019.105275].
The text files contain, time, displacement, and force. The data is useful for design engineers and researchers involved with AM when new models specifically tailored for CFRTPC are available.

The participants for the Direct Writing Assessment Scores were students in grades three to twelve who attended a private international (K-12) English immersion school in Bangkok, Thailand between the years 2012-2018.
The variables gathered each year include direct writing assessment scores based on the Oregon 6 Traits Rubric scored by two raters from National Scoring Services as well as new student status, sex, nationality based on passport, and ESL pullout program status.
This data was used with a binary logistic regression model to develop three predictive models (Year 1, Year 2, Year 3) to show how likely it would be for a participant to reach writing proficiency, and how long it may take to meet that expectation. The research question was, “To what extent can the Annual Writing Assessment scored with the six-traits writing rubric identify at-risk writers from Grades 3-12 at the International Community School BangNa, Thailand?”
The independent variables of participant bio data coded and tested for significance in the binary logistic regression model include the following:
sex (female 0; male 1)
new student status (no 0; yes 1)
Thai (no 0; yes 1)
USA (no 0; yes 1)
Indian (no 0; yes 1)
Korean (no 0; yes 1)
other nationality (no 0; yes 1)
English as L1 (0 no, 1 yes)
enrolled in the ESL pull-out program any time during their testing (no 0; yes 1).
Nationality was coded based on the passport country the participants used during the admissions process when enrolling at the school. In addition, English as L1 status was based on the participants’ passport country. English as L1 coded (yes = 1) countries included USA, Canada, England, Australia, and Kenya. The consequence of coding with such generalities means that some L2 writers may have been miscoded as L1 writers based on their passports.
Other bio data included:
initial year of Test 1
grade level (3-12; *LS)
[*Life Skill students (coded as “LS”) are secondary students
who attend the school, but are not on the academic track to
complete an accredited high school diploma.]
The independent variables of test scores coded and tested for significance in the binary logistic regression model include the following:
ideas (scale 0-6)
organization (scale 0-6)
ideas (scale 0-6)
voice (scale 0-6)
word choice (scale 0-6)
sentence fluency (scale 0-6)
conventions (scale 0-6)
The binary dependent variable was coded as “0” for students who never achieved a score average higher than 3.9 and “1” for students who scored 4.0 on at least one test.
Binary Dependent Variable Passed 4.0 at least once (0 = no; 1 = yes)
This study concerns interest in dietary supplements-related searches among Google users. The authors analyzed n = 200 topics related to dietary supplements ingredients. The highest popularity among ingredients had: "Magnesium", "Protein", and "Iron". The interest in dietary supplements varied across the countries. Users from English-speaking countries were the most interested in "Protein", while users from Europe and Central Asia in "Magnesium". Overall, the interest in dietary supplements increases in the years 2004-2019 and was the highest during February and March, while was the lowest during December.

The dataset aims to analyze the influence of agglomeration economies and universities on the performance of regional innovation. The data covers all 133 regions of Brazil and a 9-year cross-section. It is noteworthy that, the analysis data were extracted through the application of technical fda synthetic indicators, more specifically obtained through the application of the DP2 technique.
