Webinar: Searching by Variable in ICPSR

Looking for a data to analyze that contains a specific question asked in a survey, aka a specific “variable”?

Check out this webinar, “What’s in There? Searching by Variable at ICPSR,” on Tuesday, June 14 at Noon – register here!

This webinar will demonstrate strategies for searching more than 4.5 million variable descriptions in ICPSR‘s Social Science Variables Database, including the new crosswalk between the American National Election Study (ANES) Series and the General Social Survey Series.

The ICPSR Website allows users to search for variables singly or in groups. The “Compare Variables” feature brings up question text, frequencies, universe and other information, and all searches are linked to ICPSR’s dynamic online codebooks.
