Nevada Center for Surveys, Evaluation, and Statistics
The Nevada Center for Surveys, Evaluation, and Statistics (CSES) combines three prior individual research service centers: Center for Research Design and Analysis (CRDA), Nevada Center for Health Statistics and Informatics (NCHSI) and the Center for Program Evaluation (CPE), into a stronger, more comprehensive, single center. The center can handle all your data requests including survey data collection, program evaluation, and statistical analysis. Three main labs are equipped to assist departments, organizations and individuals in accessing the data resources and evaluation tools they need to produce quantitative and qualitative outcomes.
