Finding and Analyzing Disability and Rehabilitation Data:
Tools for locating, accessing, and analyzing survey and administrative data
A joint Cornell University and ADDEP Webinar
Date and Time: Monday, November 13th from 1-2pm EDT
Secondary datasets are valuable resources for testing hypotheses and generating meaningful statistics about issues related to disability and rehabilitation.
This presentation will introduce two web-based resources designed to help researchers learn about:
- Datasets related to disability and rehabilitation
- Topics covered by different datasets
- How to access the datasets
- Tools to explore and analyze the data
- Additional dataset resources and how you can share your own data
The Rehabilitation Dataset Directory is a browse-able/searchable database providing an overview, description, sample and other pertinent information for over 50 datasets. ADDEP is a data repository that acquires, preserves, and disseminates research data on disability and rehabilitation providing researchers an interactive space to explore and analyze secondary data.
The Rehabilitation Dataset Directory was developed by the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability (YTI) at Cornell University. The disability data repository, ADDEP, is hosted by ICPSR, the largest social science data archive in the world and part of the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research. Both resources are supported through a sub-contract to the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) Center for Large Data Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR) funded by The National Institutes of Health - National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (P2CHD06570
