Technical and Software Requirements
To view the tutorial, you will need the following:
an Internet browser configured to allow pop-up windows;
an Internet browser configured to allow blocked content to run;
Adobe Acrobat Reader; and
In addition, a software license to run SAS and/or SUDAAN is very helpful, though not required.
This tutorial makes heavy use of pop-up windows. Pop-up windows make it easier for you to access additional information if you want it, and to return to the main page of each module without having to use the browser's Back button.
The NHANES web tutorial also uses scripting to make its contents interactive. Microsoft Internet Explorer may be configured to block this content.
The CDC website is 800 pixels wide. Therefore, a monitor resolution of 800x600 pixels is the minimum you should use. If you use a narrower width resolution, you will have to scroll side to side, as well as up and down. We recommend a 1024 X 780 resolution for optimal viewing.
All NHANES documentation is in Acrobat .PDF format. You will need the Reader to view and read the documentation that accompanies the data files.
You can download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader from Adobe's website at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
All of the tutorial animations are in Flash .SWF format. To view them you will need a Flash Player. However, you do not have to view the animations to complete the tutorial.
Many tutorial modules contain sample code. If you wish to run this code on your own, you must have a software license to run SAS and/or SUDAAN on your computer.
