CS-Pro Demonstrations

CSPro (Census and Survey Processing System) is a public-domain software package for entering, editing, tabulating and mapping census and survey data. It is can be downloaded from the US Census Bureau website at

The Statistical Services Centre has produced a series of video demonstrations taking the user through the entire process of setting up the data entry system and entering data using CS-Pro.  We start with an explanation of the questionnaire which is used throughout the demonstrations.  The final demonstrations show the process for transferring the data entry system to a PDA.

The SSC is also running a 6-day workshop on Data Management in CS-Pro in October 2012 - click here for further information.

There are 16 demonstrations in total and they can be downloaded here :
