Class Data Sets


(1) This page is under construction so not all materials may be available..

(2) To download a data set, right click on SAS (for SAS .sas7bdat format) or SPSS (for .sav SPSS format).

(3) All data sets are in the public domain, but I have lost the references to some of them. Feel free to copy and distribute them, but do not use them for commercial gain.

(4) Downloadable documentation (which can also be viewed in the browser) is in the form of a .txt or .pdf file.This makes it easy to view in a web browser. The links under "Notes" can provide SAS code for performing analyses on the data sets.

(5) The entries under the "Notes" column show any one of a number of things: the type of analysis for which the data set is useful, a homework assignment (past or present), or a .sas file giving the code for a SAS PROC using the data set.
