This data was scraped from MAL (MyAnimeList), and then became available here. MyAnimeList is an anime and manga social networking and social cataloging application website run by volunteers. The site provides its users with a list-like system to organize and score anime and manga. With this information, users can find out more about their favorite animes, look for new anime to watch in the future, or even use an analytical lens and try to understand what makes successful shows successful. This dataset includes the title, type, mean rating, number of scoring users, status, number of episodes, start date, end date, source, and SO much more.This dataset was built using the Philadelphia Federal Reserve's State Coincident Indices and the Bry-Boschan Method for business cycle dating. It then became available here. In the tradition of Owyang, Piger, et al. business cycles are calculated on the state level which provides interesting analysis opportunities for looking at recession timing for different regions or sectors present in different states. With this information, we could look to predict future recessions, or try to understand why they occurred in the past.
