Steps taken by a typical NSRR researcher.
The SHHS dataset is one of our most popular datasets. Datasets have different populations and demographics, so pick one based on your research interest.
We've streamlined the data request process to quickly get you access to a number of rich datasets. The process allows us to aid you in selecting a dataset appropriate for your research. You can email us if you need help with this process.

downloading and installing
the NSRR downloader gem, which lets you download entire datasets at a time,
allows you to pause and resume, and checks file integrity after download.
You may already have tools to analyze data. If you don't, we have a list of community contributed tools, and a forum to get help with any of the hosted tools and data. We also encourage you to share any tools you may have that could help other researchers on the NSRR.
If you plan on publishing, using data from the NSRR, please remember to cite the NSRR, and let us know so we can better track publications linked to our resource.
