Abstract

EpiData is a MS Windows implementation for dataentry following the QES/CHK/REC file system and structure of EpiInfo version 6. EpiData is freeware and will install as a all-in-one .exe file with options saved in an ini file. Documentation is available as Windows help files and pdf files. Total size for download of setup disk is 1.3 Mb. Epidata includes several documentation tools for structure and validation of double entered data. Although EpiData cannot be used for analysis of data, overall frequency tables (codebook) and lists of data can be made. Files can be analysed directly in EpiInfo version 6, EpiInfo 2000 or other programs able to read REC files. EpiData can import data from comma separated text, dBase and Stata v4-8 and export data to dBase III, comma separated text, Excel, Stata v4-8, SAS and SPSS formats. Variable and value labels may only be exported to Stata, SPSS and SAS. Translated versions for French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and other non-english languages available at http:// www.epidata.dk Current version 3.0.
