International Travel Survey (ITS) SAS and SPSS files


I was just having a look at the International Travel Survey (ITS) files and I noticed that a fairly large proportion of them don’t have SAS or SPSS files to go along with the ASCII data.


SAS is only available from 1990-1996. SPSS is available for 1990-2000, 2007 and 2011-12, with partial coverage for 2001.

Are there any plans to fill the gaps?


Because of resource constraints, the subject matter division released the data files without any supporting syntax documentation. At the time in the DLI unit, we did not have the capacity to create these syntax files from scratch. We are reviewing resources and how we might be able to address these gaps in the near future.
