- On the survey page, select the file in the drop down box. Click on the "GO" button. In the dialog box that pops up, click on "save" or "save (link) target as."
- In the "save as" dialog box, select a destination directory in which to save the downloaded file. Click "save" to begin the download.
- After the download is complete, use "Windows Explorer" or "My Computer" to locate the file in the destination directory.
- For self-extracting files, begin the extraction by double-clicking on the file. (Your antivirus or firewall software may give you a warning such as "The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" To continue extracting, click on "Run.") In the dialog box that opens, click "finish." When asked whether to create a directory, click "yes." The extraction software will create a directory on your C drive labeled "CSFII" and a subdirectory labeled with the survey year, e.g., "C:\CSFII\9498."
