collection of the RUSS data is available in a CSV (comma
separated values) format that can be read directly by (or
easily imported into) common database and spreadsheet programs.
See our description
page of the file contents.
The ".csv" file
has been compressed into a ".zip" file -- common file decompression
programs such as WinZip for
Windows, or ZipIt for
the Mac knows how to restore it. The file size is reduced over 80%
These data should be considered "provisional" until otherwise indicated.
The data are undergoing several rounds of QA/QC review and some of the data
may be modified at a subsequent date. We chose to leave the data hose on
full blast whenever possible to familiarize ourselves with the operation
and maintenance requirements of the RUSS units and to generate real data
for use in developing curricula and lesson plans. Data gaps were associated
with various RUSS system upgrades and occasional gremlins.
Download the file LkIndep_CompleteData.zip (it's
about 220 Kbytes) and "Unzip" it using
a file decompression utility. Open the resulting ".csv"
file in Excel or your database program (Note: the 1st row
contains the column titles, the second row contains the
units). Use the filtering, sorting,
and charting capabilities of your software to explore the
