a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   James S. Jackson, Steven Heeringa, JoAnne McFarland O'Rourke

This proposal to NIMH will fund a three-day workshop in the ICPSR 2009 summer program conducted on the Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Surveys (CPES). Four ISR organizations will collaborate: RCGD, ICPSR, SRC, and SRO. Applicant selection will be competitive. The workshop will educate researchers about the background and goals of the three studies comprising CPES, the complexities of the instrumentation and datasets, the diagnostic algorithms and other constructed variables, the sample design and weights, appropriate techniques for the analysis of complex sample survey data, ICPSR’s online data analysis system through which CPES is available and special considerations in using the system, and concrete examples of analytic strategies. Investigators will be invited to join a discussion with participants in-person or via video-conference. JoAnne McFarland O’Rourke of ICPSR will coordinate the workshop.

Funding Period: 06/01/2009 to 05/31/2011
