In addition to the data available for researchers, the NCS Archive provides the NCS Teaching Database comprised of a base child-level dataset and several topic-related modules. This data is derived from files available within the NCS Archive and is based on real data collected during the NCS Vanguard Study.
The purpose of the NCS Teaching Database is to provide researchers a ready-made database system that can be used for various statistical models, including repeated measures analyses. It is freely available as a resource to supplement classroom examples and student academic projects.
