Finding & Using Data from ICPSR: Analyze Data Online

The Inter-University Consortium of Political and Social Research is a depository of datasets for use in secondary data analysis.

Using Online Data Analysis

Online data analysis enables users to explore datasets using certain statistical procedures without downloading data and setup files, and without being familiar with any statistical packages. ICPSR currently offers online analysis components for selected data collections using Survey Documentation Analysis (SDA).

You may access SDA through selected individual data collections. Click on the Online Analysis link that appears on the Search Results page, the Download page, or the Description page. If you do not see an Online Analysis link on these pages, the study is not available for online analysis.

You may also browse a list of SDA data collections available for online analysis. Only selected ICPSR data collections are available for online analysis. If you find the data collection you need on this list, click on the Datasets link, and then analyze using SDA.
