The National Center for Education Statistics’ (NCES) Datalab, introduced earlier this year by the United States Department of Education, provides a user-friendly entry to NCES data. The home page, linked above, links to
- PowerStats for users of microdata needing to run linear and logistic regressions (requires free user registration)
- Library for users looking for prepared summary tables
- Links to the Restricted-Use Data Procedures Manual
NCES also promises to soon make available tables already created via the QuickStats and PowerStats tools which would be potentially the most powerful aspect of the Datalab.
