Details

These data seem to have come from the same source as carData::Mroz, though each data set has variables not in the other. The variables that are shared have different names.

On 2019-11-04 Bruno Rodrigues explained that Ecdat::Mroz['work'] had the two labels incorrectly swapped, and wooldridge::mroz['inlf'] was correct; wooldridge matches carData::Mroz['lfp'].
