NADA survey cataloguing software

Users must be properly informed about the existence and characteristics of available survey data. To promote the use of microdata, detailed metadata must be made available in the form of a searchable on-line catalogue. To support this effort, IHSN promotes the use of the DDI metadata standard, and is developing or sponsoring the development of DDI-compliant tools and guidelines, including our specialized DDI metadata editor and the National Data Archive (NADA), a freely accessible, open-source cataloguing application.
