United States National Center for Education Statistics DataLab

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

  • QuickStats for users of summary data needing quick tables or charts (requires click-through agreement to terms of use)
  • 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.
