Database iconData from Individual Studies

The review of individual studies underlies all What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) products, from reports on a single study to a systematic review of all studies on an intervention. The WWC provides the capability for users to extract data resulting from WWC reviews for every study that meets standards.

The WWC provides this extraction tool as part of our open data approach to increase transparency. The continually updated dataset provides:

  • Greater transparency for WWC reviews, allowing users to replicate WWC findings and reports
  • Comprehensive information to encourage research questions beyond those asked by the WWC
  • Detailed study findings to allow for meta-analysis
  • Contextual information for the examination of what works for whom and under what conditions

If you are interested in a separate data extract that includes archived reviews, please visit the Archived Data From Individual Studies page. Note that archived reviews may contain information that has been updated in new reports.

Your export should download shortly as a zip archive (approximately 2 MB).

This download will include data files for study and findings review data and a data dictionary.

Consult the READ ME file before importing the files to Excel.
