The ARDA has created instructional versions of popular datasets for classroom use. These instructional datasets contain all of the cases and variables that are in the original datasets. These datasets are different from the original datasets in two ways. All missing data codes have been set to system missing, and additional variables have been added in which some continuous variables have been categorized.

First, to avoid confusion when constructing tables or interpreting basic analysis, all missing data codes have been set to system missing. Second, many of the continuous variables have been categorized into fewer categories, and added as additional variables to the file.
