For anyone using current CVS gretl or the Windows snapshot: I've
added a datafile and sample script pertaining to the possible role
of corruption in last month's ISO vote on Microsoft's "Office Open
XML". See http://www.effi.org/blog/kai-2007-09-05.en.html
The files are ooballot.gdt and ooballot.inp.
there are analyses using Fisher's Exact Test and the
Rank Sum test (done with R). The gretl script replicates those,
but also includes an ordered probit, which seems to provide
stronger evidence for the claim: the greater the degree of
"perceived corruption" in a country, the more likely was a
favourable vote for MS.
