EDAT Educational Data Analysis Tool

The Education Data Analysis Tool (EDAT) allows you to download NCES survey datasets to your computer. EDAT guides you through selecting a survey, population, and variables relevant to your analysis.

You will select a statistical software package (SAS, SPSS, Stata, R, S-Plus, or SUDAAN) or a generic file format (ASCII or CSV) for your dataset. EDAT will also use your selections to create a custom syntax file for use with your selected software.

Currently, the EDAT application contains ECLS-K (Early Childhood Longitudinal Study - Kindergarten Class of 1998-99), ELS (Education Longitudinal Study of 2002), HSLS (High School Longitudinal Study of 2009), NELS (National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988), NHES (National Household Education Survey), SASS (Schools and Staffing and Teacher Follow-up Surveys), and SSOCS (School Survey on Crime and Safety) datasets. Additional datasets will be added in the near future.

It is STRONGLY recommended that you print and read the
EDAT User's Guide before proceeding.

Selecting a statistical software package (e.g., SAS, SPSS, Stata, R, S-Plus, or SUDAAN) for your dataset and syntax file requires that you have access to that particular software. If you choose to work with a generic file format (e.g., ASCII or CSV), you may use any software or programming language you wish to conduct your analysis.
