The CLDR seeks to build infrastructure for archiving and sharing data related to rehabilitation and disability research. As federal mandates
requiring the sharing of information and data from research studies
supported by government funding are implemented, the need for effective
methods for archiving and sharing data continues to increase.
The CLDR has developed a data archiving and sharing portal that will integrate the center's Data Directory
at Cornell University with archived data at the University of
Michigan's Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social research
(ICPSR). As a member of the CLDR consortium, ICPSR contributes over 40
years of data archiving and sharing experience.
In addition to archiving and sharing, the CLDR will develop
webinars, workshops, presentations, and other training, tailored to fit
the needs of rehabilitation science researchers as federal mandates go
The Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP)
provides access to disability and rehabilitation related data. With
input from the CLDR, ADDEP will continue to find ways to improve and
facilitate collaborative research opportunities for investigators,
policymakers, and practitioners by providing access to existing
disability and rehabilitation datasets for secondary analyses.
