Export Data is a CSPro tool that allows you to export data from a CSPro file to statistical analysis packages such as SPSS, SAS, Stata, or R, by creating a data file and corresponding data description files for these packages. It also allows you to export data to tab, comma, or semicolon delimited text files. This is useful for sending data to a variety of software packages such as spreadsheets, text processors, or databases.
You also have the option of exporting the data description file as DDI XML or CSPro XML metadata files. DDI XML is a standard format for documenting microdata and these files can be used with tools such as the International Household Survey Network's Microdata Management Toolkit and National Data Archive (NADA). CSPro XML files can be used by advanced users who wish to write their own scripts to import data files into packages not otherwise supported by the Export Data tool.
Finally, Export Data allows you to export data in CSPro data format creating a CSPro dictionary for the new file.
To use Export Data go to the Tools menu and select Export Data. Select the CSPro dictionary for the data file you want to export.
