Summary of Survey Analysis Software

This page is a summary of available software for the analysis of surveys with complex sample designs. Specifically, it includes software that can do variance estimation with such survey data. It does not attempt coverage of the many excellent packages which do not have the particular features required to analyse such data. Information can be viewed by package or comparatively by topic.

The descriptions on these pages are based on information provided by the vendors/developers of this software or extracted from their manuals and home pages.
