OPRR Guidance on Approving Research Involving Prisoners   PC CARP "is a software package used to analyze survey data. The program can be used to construct estimates and standard errors for totals, means, quantiles, ratios, the difference of ratios, and the entries in two-way tables. Weighted regression equations can also be estimated. The software is designed for multistage stratified samples, and finitecorrection terms can be introduced at two stages."

Survey Research Education Programs   SAS Procedures for Analysis of Sample Survey Data
The Certificate in Public Opinion and Survey Research Program, University of Cincinnati   Software for the Statistical Analysis of Correlated Data (SUDAAN) "is specifically designed to analyze data from complex sample surveys. Multiple design options allow users to analyze data from most of the commonly used stratified, multistage sample designs. Sample members may have been selected with unequal probabilities, and either with or without replacement."

"This page is a summary of available software for the analysis of surveys with complex sample designs. Specifically, it includes software that can do variance estimation with such survey data. It does not attempt coverage of the many excellent packages which do not have the particular features required to analyse such data. Information can be viewed by package or comparatively by topic."


  WesVar "is a software package developed at Westat that computes estimates and replicate variance estimates from survey data collected using complex sampling and estimation procedures."
