I have no experience creating setup files for statistical packages. How do I load the data into the program?

You can contact ICPSR User Support at to inquire about the possibility of ICPSR creating setup files for the study. If it is determined that ICPSR cannot create them or cannot create them within your time frame, then you are advised to seek assistance from someone on your campus with experience in the statistical package that you have chosen to use. The study codebook contains variable information that is needed to create a setup file. If you are at a member institution, consult with your local ICPSR Official Representative as to who locally can help you in creating such files. For that person's contact information, check our "Need Help?" page from a campus computer, or search for your school's information.
