Variable - Codebook


The CPES website provides information about the thousands of variables that users may access in the public-use files for CPES and its constituent surveys: the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R), the National Survey of American Life (NSAL), and the National Latino and Asian American Study (NLAAS). Data and documentation files for all of these surveys are available at /icpsrweb/CPES/data.jspDownload Public Use Data. In addition, there are a small number of variables that are available only as restricted-use files. Please note that we have not harmonized these data but have provided tables for each file that list the names of all variables along with their labels and formats.

The PDF codebook can answer many basic questions about the data; you will need a MyData account to download the codebook.
