In conclusion, the Center for Electronic Records has custody of a large and varied number of computerized data files available for researchers in Latin American studies. The data files range from long-term comparative statistics on trade and transportation, to longitudinal studies of incidents of malnutrition, to indexes to development related studies and captured documents. Researchers interested in international studies in general, or particularly in resources related to Latin America, should be aware of the electronic records at the National Archives and exploit these resources for their research. In addition, many of the records associated with USIA attitudinal surveys may be appropriate for use in quantitative methods classes, especially where the professors own research is international in focus.
