Michele Kristakis from Lexis Nexis will be here Wednesday, February 10 from 10-10:50 am in Hale 202 for a brief, hands-on training session of their new database product, Lexis Nexis Statistical Datasets.
Lexis Nexis Statistical Datasets is a database that allows you to build customizable tables and charts while drawing upon a very comprehensive collection of data sources, both public and proprietary. These customizable tables and charts can then be captured in PDF format, pasted into a word document, or exported to EXCEL, SAS, or any software package that accepts a comma delimited format.
This database looks like an exciting product that will be useful for a number of different disciplines – Education, Economics, Political Science, and could be particularly important for cross-disciplinary research, in its ability to merge stats from a variety of government agencies, think tanks, etc. with relative ease.
We have not yet decided to license this product, so – now is a good time to see it, try it, and ask pertinent questions about it.
