    I found the indexes to this hard to use, because they were so extensive, but I found some useful information using the search feature, which was nice to see. Once I got to the tables, however, I had a hard time navigating them within the web version. I would have liked to have seen the PDFs or the Excel versions, but the trial version wouldn’t allow access to those. It’s hard to evaluate this without access to those, because I found the web versions of large tables REALLY clunky.

    I found this statistical database a little easier to use than some others (CSI). I thought it was a little annoying when trying to navigate through the tables on the web version. Since, we weren’t able to use all the features in the trial, it’s had to say how usefull this will be overall.

    The tables and essays available in Part A (which is the section accessible with trial access) look excellent. I’d like to know what our local census and data pro, John Walters, has to say about the value this product would add to the data we have available now.

    The interface is clunky, but it certainly is easier to use this database that to use print and microform sources to obtain some of the data.

    Topics addressed seem very relevant to many researchers on our campus. What does it cost??
