You've searched the catalog and found 4 studies that look promising for your project. How do you choose? The one that comes up first in the search results? The one with the most publications? Oops, one is restricted, now you're down to 3... This presentation will demonstrate how to use the information provided about each study to help choose the one that best fits your research needs. We will talk about some of the important metadata fields, the difference between restricted and public-use files, and how to use the codebook and online analysis tools to help evaluate what you've found in the context of your project.


This is part of the ICPSR Maximizing Your Membership Value Series. See previous webinars from this series on the ICPSR YouTube channel, and find out more about ICPSR membership at icpsr.umich.edu.
