The data in this paper are some of the data from my dissertation. For those who are unfamiliar with how things work in the scholarly community (such as the smear campaigners who are already slamming me for this on one of the other WordPress blogs devoted to smearing me), publishing ones data is an accepted and highly encouraged practice and considered to be an achievement, not something to slam someone for. In fact, new tenure track faculty are often allowed to use their time for research during their first few years to get their dissertation written up and published although only a small percentage of PhDs actually do. One of the requirements for a dissertation is that it consist of original research that contributes to the field, and so publication of ones dissertation data is considered to be publication of original research.
