Introduction to Secondary Data

Date: Wednesday, November 08, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM
Location: Northeast Medical Building Room 1140

Categories: Office for Research and Economic Development

Led by Dr. John C. Higginbotham, Associate Vice President for Research, this workshop is designed for beginning researchers or more experienced researchers who need to be introduced to secondary data analysis.  Secondary data analysis is research involving the analysis of data previously gathered for other research work.  Secondary data analysis enables beginning researchers to utilize the data-collecting skill of more experienced and sophisticated researchers giving the beginning researcher access to much larger amounts of data than they could easily or economically acquire on their own.

This type of analysis is often useful for developing a publication record with a research team who is going for a larger grant to demonstrate collaborative effort, or as preliminary studies to a larger investigation, etc.  Examples will be presented from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and from Electronic Medical Records.  Other resources including a template for undertaking such projects will be shared.

Lunch will be provided to participants who register by 1:00 p.m. November 6, 2017.
