Q:  

I have a student who is trying to find time series physical capital stock from years more recent than are provided by the Penn World Table. Do you know if these data are available anywhere post-early 1990's? A search of the literature points to Nehru and Dhareshwar (1993) dataset, which can be found at http://go.worldbank.org/SR5689V6S0.
