T1- Data Mining, analysis and prediction
Topp, N., & Pawloski, B. (2002). Online Data Collection. Journal of Science Education and Technology, 11(2), 173-178.
This paper touches on the history online data collection, some brief review of the more recent progress and work that is being done as well as how a database connected to the Internet collects data. It also presents a brief insight into where these methods might head towards in the future. Overall, this is a short 7-page article to give a good insight and a starting point as well good references.
Hand, D., Blunt, G., Kelly, M., & Adams, N. (2000). Data Mining for Fun and Profit. Statistical Science, 15(2), 111-126.
This is a more detailed paper regarding the different tool, models, patterns and quality of data mining. Even though it was written in 2000 is very useful is terms of getting a broader idea of model building and pattern detection. It looks at statistical tools and their implementation as well as the challenges to data mining through well explained examples and graphs.

Economist have always been keen to collect and analyze data for their research and experimentation. This paper introduces how data scraping has been employed by companies and businesses to extract data for their use. It is an excellent paper that combines data scraping with data analysis and where and how it has been used. It sets the foundation for data analysis and lists various other good papers in the particular field.
Buhrmester, M., Kwang, T., & Gosling, S. (2011). Amazon’s Mechanical Turk: A New Source of Inexpensive, Yet High-Quality, Data? Perspectives on Psychological Science, 6(1), 3-5.
Amazon’s Mechanical Turk helps bring together a statistician’s dream of data collection and an economist’s love for data analysis. It has proved to be an excellent platform to conduct research in not only economics but also psychology and other social sciences. This is a very short 4 page paper that looks at the mechanical Turk, what it has helped research and conclude and how it has been used to obtain high quality inexpensive data. This paper is significant in a sense that it is an application of the above-mentioned tools of collection, analysis and possibly prediction.
