Can you help me convert ICPSR 9619 into SPSS?


This is a dataset that only comes in ASCII with no set-up files for SAS, SPSS, or stata.

Study 9619

That means you have to create your own set-up file from the technical documentation. It will tell you which columns your variables of interest are in.

Here’s an SPSS syntax manual if you’ve never done this before:

I was assuming that there would be a SAS or stata file that I could have converted to SPSS for you using Stat Transfer. That is a program that converts files from one language to another.

You can contact ICPSR to see if this file is in line to get set-up files: netmail@icpsr.umich.edu
