Analyze ICPSR data online
ICPSR's Survey Documentation Analysis (SDA) system enables you to explore, subset, and analyze data online, without having to download it or use a statistical software package. Available for a subset of ICPSR studies, use SDA to:
- calculate the statistics you need
- better understand the data
- create a customized subset before doing full analysis in the software package of your choice.
View all ICPSR studies for which online analysis is available. For studies where it's available, click on the Online Analysis on the search results or the study home page.
To learn more about the system, see ICPSR's YouTube videos on SDA.
