Join us today for an introduction to Public-Use Data. Secondary analysis of publicly available data is one of the most common forms of research conducted by social scientists. Public use data are perfect for students who are looking for greater accessibility to inexpensive data for research projects. In this workshop, you will learn the answers to: What are the resources you can use to search for public use data? Which organizations offer access to public use data? What actions need to be performed to access public use data and how do you download the data you want? How do you use statistical software (SAS, SPSS, STATA) to adjust data sets to your own needs? Check dates and times, read workshop descriptions, and register for attendance at: https://domino.american.edu/AU/CTRL/CTRL_TrainCal.nsf/Welcome. If you want to schedule in-class workshops for these programs or any other programs we support, please tell us about your needs here: https://american.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_cBZa3F5aX6N7TuJ.
