Datasets, Variables, and Online Analysis

Research Connections offers both research data suitable for further analysis and statistical results generated from public sources. We use the term "research data" to refer to the coded responses from each respondent, documentation that provides the original questions asked, and discussions of complex statistical methods. In order to make use of this data, you will need statistical software and a good understanding of statistical methodology.

Search for Datasets

A comprehensive search of all datasets, searching all of the documentation available for our studies

Analyze Data Online

Some datasets are also available for online analysis through a system that allows you to run simple analyses, recode and compute new variables, and subset variables or cases for downloading.

Search for and Compare Variables

Users can examine and compare questions and variables across studies.

Please note that we do not have variable-level information for all datasets in our collection; do not use this tool to locate datasets. For a comprehensive search of all datasets, use our main data search, which indexes all of the documentation available for our studies, including the variable descriptions.
