ICPSR online web survey analysis tool

Like many universities, Tufts has a subscription membership to the ICPSR. Over the years, a typical use case would be for a researcher to download data for local analysis. In this way one would have maximal access to raw data and use of analysis tools of one’s choice. Recently, ICPSR has provided a web front end tool, Survey Documentation Analysis (SDA), for online analysis suitable for routine statistical queries. Many datasets in the archive have been prepared for use with this tool. SDA is available to any Tufts faculty, staff or students. It would seem that use of this interface in support of some class teaching activities would lower the barrier to analysis that a more traditional approach would require.
