CSPro, short for the Census and Survey Processing System, is a public domain statistical package developed by the U.S. Census Bureau and ICF International. Serpro S.A. was involved in past development. Funding for development comes primarily from the U.S. Agency for International Development.
The software can be used for entering, editing, tabulating, mapping, and disseminating census and survey data. This package is widely used by statistical agencies in developing countries and major international household survey programs, such as Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) and Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS). Unicode data entry is supported, and surveys can be conducted on Android devices.
CSPro was designed and implemented through a joint effort by the developers of two software packages that were previously used to process census and survey data on DOS machines: the Integrated Microcomputer Processing System (IMPS) and the Integrated System for Survey Analysis (ISSA). The public domain distribution is binary-only, running on the Microsoft Windows and Android families of operating systems. The source code has not been released to the public.
