Click on "Abst" to view an abstract for a dataset. Each dataset is available using the most recent version of SDA (SDA 4), but often can also be accessed using an older version (SDA 3.5). We recommend that everyone use the latest version. However, if you can't always use the latest version, note that the SDA 4 dataset links use the same workspace for new variables (created by RECODE or COMPUTE) as the SDA 3.5 interface. This means you can create variables using either the SDA 3.5 or SDA 4 interface and use these variables with either interface. (A few dataset links are labeled "Quick Tables". This is a simplified user interface -- no longer being developed -- for generating basic crosstabulations from a pre-selected subset of the variables in the study. These links are maintained because some college classes still depend on them.)

For video tutorials on using SDA 4 see the SDA YouTube Channel.

SDA Update: All datasets on the SDA Archive page that use SDA 4 have now been updated to use 4.1.3. Enhancements that have been made since the initial release of 4.0 include:
