Finding data using ICPSR's data archive

Getting Started

To create an account, access the ICPSR Website through the ICPSR link in the Wilson Library DATABASES A-Z page  ICPSR will recognize you as a University of La Verne student, faculty, or staff member and you will then have the ability to create your own MyData account.

ICPSR FAQ on logging in.

Even if you are accessing the ICPSR site from on campus, you will still be asked to login using your personal account.  You are usually asked to login at the point of download.  A nice feature of the account is that it keeps track of past datasets you've downloaded.

Datasets archived at ICPSR are formatted for use with statistical software such as SPSS, SAS and Stata, etc.  Some datasets can be analyzed online through the Survey Documentation and Analysis (SDA) system.

Much of the content in this guide refers to the ICPSR Help pages, and is adapted from Wendy Mann's InfoGuide on ICPSR located on the Geoorge Mason University Libraries website.
