Restricted Files Now Available
Restricted files for the studies comprising CPES (NCSR, NSAL, NLAAS) and are now available in SAS, SPSS and STATA. Please note that we have not harmonized these data but have provided a table (Excel 91K; PDF 82K) that compares questions across studies so analysts can consult these before merging and harmonizing these data. These data also have not been cleaned to the same standards as those data in the public release files. Analysts wanting to request the restricted files should consult ICPSR's instructions on Applying for Restricted Data and complete the forms as outlined. Analysts wishing geographic identifiers should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Distributions for restricted data can be viewed in the Interactive Codebook tab on the CPES Web site.
