Statistical Infrastructure for Combining Information from Multiple Data Sources

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   Trivellore Raghunathan

Over the past several years the principal investigator of this proposal has been involved in developing methods for combining information from multiple data sources. These methods can be enhanced and become more useful if a proper computational infrastructure implementing them were made available to substantive researchers.The end product of this proposal will be a software infrastructure (built upon the existing infrastructure developed by the principal investigator) and will be downloadable via web by health researchers. The user of this software will input two or more data sets, list all the variables to be analyzed from these data sets, specify the statistical model to test a research hypothesis and the software will create multiply imputed data sets, fit the analytical model on each data set, combine the inferences and disseminate the results in an user-friendly output of the analysis results.

Funding Period: 09/24/2009 to 08/31/2012
