Can I get the original data?
In accordance with our agreements with the host countries and the Church of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), NAPP does not distribute the original samples provided by our international partners. We do provide access to unharmonized variables, but even these have undergone processing. We clean up stray codes, translate the labels into English, document the variable, and sometimes perform additional programming. We take care not to lose meaningful information in these transformations, so researchers retain access to the full power of the original information in the input variables.
