Scope and content

Each dataset typically includes the survey results (held in a data file), a questionnaire, and a data dictionary. Also included are some interpretive reports. Survey results, held in a tabular file format, hold all the information acquired in the survey from each respondent. This information is derived from the survey’s questions; and possible variables and different answers to questions is summarized in the data dictionary. When available, interpretive reports developed by the research unit offer statistical tables and analysis to the survey’s end user. All these accompanying files and documentation enrich the survey results by contextualizing the data through its original questions and often by offering interpretive analysis.
