Database Support

Many AM users analyze data sets from the National Center from Education Statistics (NCES). NCES helped fund some of the development of AM, and often uses AM when it teaches researchers about its data sets. About half of the technical support questions that we get through the AM website are really questions about NCES data sets rather than our software. We are pleased to be able to help with these issues also.

If you have a question about a particular data set, such as how a particular variable was defined, which variables should be used for weights, or how to describe the sample in your paper, please select the appropriate page below.

If you have questions about how to use the AM software, or have encountered a bug or problem with the software, please visit the AM Support Page.
