Bankruptcy Internet Data Project

I just found the greatest website for statistical junkies - I'm embarrassed that I didn't know about it before.  Its called the Bankruptcy Internet Data Project, hosted by Harvard Law, and run by Profs. Bob Lawless, Elizabeth Warren and a bunch of others.  You click in what data you want to see and how you want it presented and its instantaneous.  The project is at http://bdp.law.harvard.edu/fellows.cfm

Actually, we have been beta testing this web site and weren't quite ready to make a public announcement, although I was afraid the web crawlers from the search engines would find us.

The numbers above for February are not accurate. That is only for a partial month. Once the final numbers are available for February, the increase will be higher.

I agree. I am a stats junkie too.
