October 27, 2008 - To ensure health protection for U.S. citizens through promotion, prevention and preparedness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) selected advanced data collection survey software from SPSS Inc. to analyze the source and spread of infectious diseases and prepare for and respond to urgent public health threats.


With SPSS data collection survey software, CDC can capture immediate feedback from citizens on critical public health information, regardless of geography or language, through a diverse array of communications devices to better understand behaviors and attitudes and devise the most appropriate response.


CDC has standardized with SPSS Dimensions data collection software as the foundation of its internal and external survey methodology. SPSS data collection software enables the agency to quickly design custom surveys for global research and reporting needs. CDC is able to securely deploy questionnaires via the Web, telephone, mobile devices or paper, and garner a high response rate.


SPSS data collection software is an integral part of a predictive analytics solution that allows organizations to better understand and predict future behavior by incorporating attitudinal data gathered from diverse stakeholders, such as customers, students and citizens, during naturally occurring interactions or as part of structured feedback initiatives.
