Economic/Financial studies in ICPSR

I wanted to remind everyone about what a great resource ICPSR can be. While it may not be the first thing to come to mind when thinking of economic and financial data, it does have some interesting studies that may be of interest to faculty. Recently for example, a study with the following data was posted: "What Does the Federal Reserve's Economic Value Model Tell Us About Interest Rate Risk at United States Community Banks?", with data gathered by 2 researchers from the Federal Bank of Saint Louis. This particular study can be found at: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/01309.xml.
