> One of the potential categories for the grant is the purchase of data.
> Is anyone aware of any particularly interesting network data sets that 
> are:
> 1. Instructive for undergraduates to work on and
> 2. Cost no more than $3,000
> Bonus points for *politically* oriented data (but this is not a 
> requirement).
> Also, if anyone is aware of any particularly useful network software 
> programs that require purchase -- they are not freely available -- I'd 
> be interested in knowing about them.  As is, I am planning to ask for 
> 40 copies of UCINet.
> Thanks!
