Analysis of Survey Data

  • Choosing the Correct Analysis for Various Survey Designs, UCLA Academic Technology Services
  • Free Statistical Software; maintained by J. C. Pezzullo
  • Free Statistical Tools on the Web
  • IBM® SPSS® Complex Samples “helps make more statistically valid inferences by incorporating the sample design into survey analysis.”
  • The Impoverished Social Scientist's Guide to Free Statistical Software and Resources
  • 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 finite correction terms can be introduced at two stages.”
  • R “provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible.”
  • New SAS® Procedures for Analysis of Sample Survey Data
  • SDA (Survey Documentation and Analysis) "SDA is a set of programs for the documentation and Web-based analysis of survey data. SDA is developed and maintained by the Computer-assisted Survey Methods Program (CSM) at the University of California, Berkeley.
  • STATA®is “a fast, powerful statistical package designed for researchers of all disciplines.”
  • SUDAAN® “is an internationally recognized statistical software package that specializes in providing efficient and accurate analysis of data from complex studies. SUDAAN is ideal for the proper analysis of data from surveys and experimental studies, since SUDAAN procedures properly account for complex design features, such as correlated observations, clustering, weighting, and stratification.”
  • Summary of Survey Analysis Software
    “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."
