NIS Data

NIS data are available in two forms-a public use dataset and a restricted-use contractual dataset . Deductive disclosure concerns prevent full access to all data sources.


NIS Public Data: Instructions for Downloading Data

In order to obtain access to the public use data, all users must first register via the online registration form at the Office of Population Research (OPR) Data Archive.

We will NOT release any of your information to third parties. This registration has the sole purpose of keeping a log of users for future communications.

We ask that users:

  1. Complete the registration process the first time they access the data;
  2. Respect the confidentiality of the respondents by not attempting to identify any individual in the data;
  3. Direct persons interested in the data to this page so that they can register for and download the data themselves;
  4. E-mail nis@opr.princeton.edu with the reference to published materials that they author using NIS data; and

NIS Revised Public Use Data

The revisions, which mainly addressed minor problems discovered in the first year of release, is provided on the NIS What's New web page. These revisions should not affect analyses already completed or underway with the original release data. Those who previously downloaded the original version may wish to use this revised version for subsequent analyses.
