Analysis Examples Replication The analysis examples replication materials cover Chapters 512 of ASDA but not every software package contains all 8 chapters. Lack of a link for a given chapter indicates that this software package does not include the ability to perform this type of analysis technique. SAS v9.2 Code and Results

Site Overview This site contains information about the text "Applied Survey Data Analysis" including author biographies, links to public release data sets and related sites, code and output for analysis examples replicated in current software packages, and information about new publications of interest to survey data analysts. Other features include a FAQ log and links to other software and statistical sites. We plan to intermittently update this site with news about ongoing statistical and software advances in the field of analysis of survey data.
Special Note from Authors The most recent printing of Applied Survey Data Analysis, as of March 7, 2013, has a font issue where some symbols appear to be missing in the text. This problem is being corrected for all future printings. Please accept our apologies and this will be fixed as soon as possible.
Applied Survey Data Analysis is the product born of many years of teaching applied survey data analysis classes and practical experience analyzing survey data. We have taught various versions of this course in the ISR/SRC Summer Institute Program, as part of University of Michigan/CSCAR, and within the Survey Methodology Program at University of Michigan and University of Maryland. Our goal has been to integrate teaching materials and practical analysis knowledge into a textbook geared to a level accessible for graduate students and working analysts who may have varying levels of statistical and analytic expertise. We intend to update the materials on this website as statistical and software improvements emerge with the goal of assisting analyst and researchers performing survey data analysis.
Patricia A. Berglund is a Senior Research Associate in the Survey Methodology Program at the Institute for Social Research. She has extensive experience in the use of computing systems for data management and complex sample survey data analysis. She works on research projects in youth substance abuse, adult mental health, and survey methodology using data from Army STARRS, Monitoring the Future, the National Comorbidity Surveys, World Mental Health Surveys, Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Surveys, and various other national and international surveys. In addition, she is involved in development, implementation, and teaching of analysis courses and computer training programs at the Survey Research CenterInstitute for Social Research. She also lectures in the SAS® InstituteBusiness Knowledge Series. mailto:pberg@umich.edu Steven G. Heeringa is a Research Scientist in the Survey Methodology Program, the Director of the Statistical and Research Design Group in the Survey Research Center, and the Director of the Summer Institute in Survey Research Techniques at the Institute for Social Research. He has over 25 years of statistical sampling experience directing the development of the SRC National Sample design, as well as sample designs for SRC's major longitudinal and crosssectional survey programs. During this period he has been actively involved in research and publication on sample design methods and procedures such as weighting, variance estimation, and the imputation of missing data that are required in the analysis of sample survey data. He has been a teacher of survey sampling methods to U.S. and international students and has served as a sample design consultant to a wide variety of international research programs based in countries such as Russia, the Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, India, Nepal, China, Egypt, Iran, and Chile. mailto:sheering@umich.edu Brady T. West is an Assistant Research Professor in the Survey Methodology Program at the University of Michigan and an Assistant Research Scientist at the Center for Statistical Consultation and Research (CSCAR) on the University of Michigan campus. He earned a PhD in Survey Methodology from the Michigan Program in Survey Methodology, and also received an MA in Applied Statistics from the University of Michigan Statistics Department. His primary research interests revolve around regression models for clustered and longitudinal data, and he has authored a book, "Linear Mixed Models: A Practical Guide Using Statistical Software" (www.umich.edu/~bwest/almmussp.html) comparing different statistical software packages in terms of their mixed modeling procedures (Chapman Hall/CRC Press, 2007). He specializes in applications of statistical software and analysis of survey data, and through CSCAR teaches several yearly short courses on statistical methodology and software. mailto:bwest@umich.edu 1.
