Abstract : The Economic Report of the President Data Analysis Model (EROP) is an automated database of selected elements from the Economic Report of the President. This report is published annually by the Government Printing Office. The model uses the LOTUS spreadsheet program and is macro-driven based on button selections made by the user. The model allows the user to select various functions to perform on the data such as graphing and regression analysis. The primary value of the model is that it allows the user to graph economic data over time to aid in determining trends and relationships. The user can also perform regression analysis on data elements, create and graph new data elements based on simple mathematical relationships developed by the user, and maintain and update the database based on newly published reports. The model was developed to create a simple, automated process that allows ICAF faculty and students to analyze economic data quickly and easily.
