Simmons Insights

Material from Simmons

Simmons Insights used to be called Simmons OneView. Check out these guides about using Cross Tabs:

Citing Simmons Insights

You retrieved data or otherwise built a cross-tabulation using Simmons' adult survey (NHCS)

  • MRI-Simmons (2017).  Spring 2017 NHCS Adult Study 12 Month [Data File].  Retrieved from Simmons Insights Database.

Edit your citation to indicate the survey year you actually used and/or to reflect instances when the data or cross tabulation comes from a survey (i.e., study) within Simmons of those other than adults (such as the “Simmons Connect” studies).  For example:

  • MRI-Simmons (2017).  Spring 2017 Simmons Connect Study [Data File]. Retrieved from Simmons Insights Database.
