Major Data Collections and Innovations at DPRC
Contemporary population research increasingly involves sophisticated analyses of large, complex datasets. DPRC members are the leaders or co-PIs of many well-known, long-running longitudinal surveys of people, such as the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health & Development Study and, even of primates, such as the nearly half-century-long Amboseli Baboon Research Project.
Our members have also generated large datasets by linking government administrative records and other sources, such as U.S. Social Security, Medicare and Census data. And they are innovating new methods of data collection using Network-focused methods to study hard-to-reach populations in China and Tanzania, and marshaling information technologies to enhance studies of human development in the U.S.
