NCES Releases New PowerStats Data Analysis Tool

June 14, 2010

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has announced the release of PowerStats, a new data analysis tool that provides access to nine NCES postsecondary education datasets and the thousands of variables they contain. PowerStats users can create tables and regression analyses with a drag-and-drop interface, and can receive their data in Excel, PDF, and other formats. PowerStats also provides users the ability to search for variables, to save recoded variables for future use, and to build an online library of their work and share their work with other users. PowerStats can be used to access and analyze information from the 2004 and 2008 National Postsecondary Student Aid Studies, the Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study, the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study, and the National Study of Postsecondary Faculty. Users may access PowerStats at
