Advanced Search

Narrow your search by providing more terms or choosing more options.

By default all collection waves are included in the search; choosing one collection wave narrows the search to only that one collection wave.

Example, for 'Variable description contains' enter 'dog' click Search. 13 variables spanning 5 waves are returned. Choose the 5 collection waves on the right, 2003 - 2011, and click Search. 10 variables are returned, none prior to 2004. For 'Variable name is' enter 'zp06rer' click Search. 2 variables are returned, only two 2011 CAPI variables match all terms. Note that partial variable names are allowed and leaving off the first character of the variable name acts like a wildcard. As an example of the possibilities and limitations of this technique blank out 'variable description contains' and unselect all collection waves and enter variable name is 'a003re' and click Search.
