  2. The economy. https://www.nber.org/system/files/chapters/c4224/c4224.pdf.
  3. Migration.
  4. Weather stations
  5. Olympics events. Who decides on the scoring?. Who does the timing?
  6. Personality scores. Myers Briggs and Big 5 more generally.
  7. Cause of death
  8. City boundaries. What constitues ‘Atlanta?’ Different definitions - metro, X, Y. (also an issue in countries with boundaries changing over time)
  9. Timing
