General Order Information
There is no cost to receive any NDACAN dataset. NDACAN prepares datasets for distribution on MS Windows workstations and include digital documentation and installation instructions. Documentation for most datasets consists of a users guide, codebook, original instruments, and references to relevant publications. Each dataset is distributed in one compressed .zip package which contains the data files. You can open .zip packages with MS Windows' built-in extraction (open the .zip package and choose File > Extract All). You can also use a free utility called 7Zip, or other .zip package software. After you have extracted the contents of a .zip package to your hard drive, open the "Readme" (or equivalent) file for information about the data files.
Your file(s) for download will expire in only 10 calendar days from when you receive the download invitation from Box.com: please download immediately.
All data files are distributed in SPSS and SAS compatible formats. Some datasets are distributed as text files with import statements for SAS, SPSS, STATA, and R.
If you have a questions about files shipment issues, please e-mail NDACAN@cornell.edu.
If you need help loading the data or have questions about the contents of the dataset, please e-mail NDACANSupport@cornell.edu and a staff person will contact you. In addition, our User Support section contains help documents and videos.
