DUPRI is pleased to announce the release of two rich data sets available to DUPRI scholars and DUPRI affiliates for use in their research.
The Durham County Social Determinants of Health (DCSDH) is a large, address-level contextual database that merges multiple publicly available demographic, employment, tax, housing, and health metrics from Durham County into a single database. This dataset is being made available as part of DPRC's Durham Population Lab initiative and is of particular interest to researchers interested in population health, education, and employment. More information about the data set and how to access it can be found here.
DUPRI has also contributed funding to provide subscription access to CMIE's Consumer Pyramidsdx data. This dataset, collected by Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) is the world’s largest household panel survey; it interviews over 174,000 households (and all members) three times a year since the panel was started in 2014. As of May 2021, the 23rd wave is currently being collected. The dataset has four components that provide demographic, employment, income, consumption, and time use data. The subscription provides access for Duke users through May 2022. More information about the dataset is available here. Instructions for accessing the data are available here. If you have questions about the data, please contact Manoj Mohanan.
