SF3 Code, Census 2000

Posted on Updated on

The Network has a long history of collaborating on the writing of SAS and SPSS code and to share that within the network. It is a signficant network collaboration that shows an outstanding commitment by peers nationwide to share each other’s work.

Instead of hundreds of programmers developing similar routines and code, this collaborative effort leverages the work of a few and maximizing output for the entire network. Individual units are free to customize the modules and the data for purposes specific to their constituents. We only ask that credit be given to the SDC/BIDC National Network.
