Researchers may submit requests for computer-run analyses of Kinsey Institute data. Requests must list specific variables and their exact manipulation. Codebooks are necessary for the selection of specific variables for statistical analysis. For ease and speed, the Institute usually programs in SPSS. Clients may provide their prepared SPSS jobs in order to maintain control over programming, to reduce costs and to shorten turnaround time. Output can be supplied to the client on paper, disk, or via electronic network. Programming and computer-consulting time is billed to the researcher.

The codebooks listed below may be ordered from the Institute. Prepayment in U.S. funds is required. Send orders to: The Kinsey Institute, Library User Services, Morrison 420, Bloomington, IN 47405. The Internet address for questions about data runs is
