One of the most powerful tools that OAIOnline offers for familiarizing users with the study data is search/browse. It allows you to search or browse categorized variable documentation and see the results displayed longitudinally. Each variable label is in turn linked to statistics, comments, and the page from the annotated data collection form that the variable originally appeared on.
To begin, click on the search/browse link in the upper menu under Data & Documentation and the following window below will be shown. The two red arrows below point to the search and then the browse input areas respectively.
First we will examine how to use the browse feature, then the search feature, and finally a combination of both.
