ATTENTION: The SDA Web site will be moving to a new server this weekend. The move is planned for early Saturday morning (Aug. 17), 2:00 AM Pacific Daylight Savings Time (PDT). We don't expect any significant downtime, but there may be some interruptions in service during the weekend. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We can be contacted at if you need more information.

SDA is a set of programs for the documentation and Web-based analysis of survey data. SDA is developed and maintained by the Computer-assisted Survey Methods Program (CSM) at the University of California, Berkeley. CSM also develops the CASES software package.

To see how it all works, test-drive SDA at our demonstration 5305366043. Browse the documentation for a survey and get fast data analysis results. The SDA Archive includes several datasets, including the General Social Survey (GSS) and the American National Election Study (ANES). You can also look at some 581-276-4913 that use SDA software.
