PEW releases data sets

Today PEW released five data sets from their 2004 and 2005 surveys. It is my understanding that this is all survey data and that focus group data is never released. *sigh* I sure understand the reasons but I don't have to like it...what fun we could have with the textual data.

Data Set: May-June 2005 Spyware
This data set includes questions about spyware, adware, and related computer problems.

Data Set: February-March 2005 Major Moments
This data set includes questions about the influence of the internet on major life decisions.

Data Set: January 2005 tracking
This data set includes basic tracking questions.

Data Set: Teens and Parents 2004
This data set includes questions about how teenagers and their parents use and view the internet in their lives.

Data Set: July 2004 Selective Exposure
This data set contains questions about 2004 election issues including the war in Iraq, gay marriage, and free trade.

It's still really great news! I rushed off to get the files and discovered to my amusement a new error message on the Pew site I hadn't seen before:

"Error ! The current browser is either too old or too modern"

Well that helps...

Actually, that's a problem in Firefox. But the error doesn't interfere with access to the data sets in the browser. I know, I just downloaded one for some students last night using FFX.
