National Drug Abuse and HIV Data Program

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   Amy M. Pienta

The Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research, University of Michigan, Institute for Social Research, Ann Arbor, Michigan will establish an archive of drug abuse and HIV research data which will primarily include social science and behavioral data. The end goal of the contract will be to: 1) introduce the concept of data sharing to the drug abuse social science researchers, 2) provide technical assistance and financial support to investigators in preparing their data for archiving, 3) inform the field of datasets that are available for secondary analysis and display the utility of this approach for addressing new research questions, 4) provide technical assistance to users of the data sets including organized training and informal site visits and 5) provide support to principal investigators with high priority NIDA data (i.e., Longitudinal, HIV/AIDS, health disparities, and comorbities.) The NIDA has funded many datasets in the social and behavioral sciences and is now pursuing archiving these datasets and making them available to other researchers in the field. ICPSR will provide the services of data archiving, technical assistance to investigators preparing their data for archiving, technical assistance to investigators accessing and analyzing archived datasets, and training in secondary data use. Having been in existence since 1962, ICPSR is the recognized leader in the field of data archiving, data dissemination and documentation, advanced research training and related activities. ICPSR is considered the largest archive of digital social science data in the world. Many factors contribute to their position in the field, including physical capabilities, staff on the cutting edge in both technology and the science of data sharing.

The project will include seven sets of tasks to establish and support data archiving for NIDA funded data systems and fulfill the description outlined in the scope of work. These tasks include (1) Project management and reporting; (2) Data Acquisition and Evaluation; (3) Data Processing and Preservation; (4) Program to Support Data Preparation; (5) Enhanced Data Dissemination; (6) Technical Support and Outreach; and (7) training and Workshops.

Funding Period: 09/30/2009 to 07/31/2014
