What is the DataFerrett?
DataFerrett is a unique data mining and extraction tool. (FERRETT stands for Federated Electronic Research, Review, Extraction, and Tabulation Tool.) DataFerrett allows you to select a databasket full of variables and then recode those variables as you need.
You can then develop and customize tables. Selecting your results in your table you can create a chart or graph for a visual presentation into an html page. Save your data in the databasket and save your table for continued reuse.
DataFerrett helps you locate and retrieve the data you need across the Internet to your desktop or system, regardless of where the data resides. DataFerrett:
- lets you receive data in the form in which you need it (whether it be extracted to an ascii, SAS, SPSS, Excel/Access file); or
- lets you move seamlessly between query, analysis, and visualization of data in one package;
- lets data providers share their data easier, and manage their own online data.
