Major Data Collections and Innovations at CPHA
Contemporary population research increasingly involves sophisticated analyses of large, complex datasets. CPHA members are the leaders or co-PIs of many well-known, long-running longitudinal surveys, including major decades-long projects with non-human primates. Our members have also generated large datasets from government administrative records and other sources, such as U.S. Social Security, Medicare and Census data.
These diverse collections hold great potential for contributions to knowledge in the areas of Biodemography of Aging, Life Course Analysis and Intergenerational Linkages, and they have already yielded hundreds of research papers by scholars around the world. In addition, we have acquired several large datasets, generated by others, for Duke researchers.
