Summer Workshop on Integrated Data Analysis for Addiction Research

Event Dates: Monday  July 01 - Wednesday  July 03
City: Ann Arbor   State: Michigan   Country: USA
Event Type: Short Courses ASA Sponsored: No
Description:
The National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP) is holding a 3-day workshop on Integrated Data Analysis. Integrated data analysis (IDA) allows for the pooling of separate data sets to create larger, more heterogeneous data sets that can be used to test hypotheses, despite differences across studies in populations, study design, and measurement. Unlike data harmonization which requires identical measures across datasets, IDA allows for the development of measures that are psychometrically equivalent across data sets. This training workshop will use lectures and hands-on training. A limited number of needs-based stipends are available to help with travel and housing costs. To be considered for a stipend, applicants must clearly indicate aid needed in the cover letter and also submit a letter of support from a senior faculty member, mentor, or adviser. Deadline for application is June 1, 2013. There are no tuition fees for accepted participants. Admission to this workshop is competitive. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants. Get more information about the workshop and apply using the ICPSR Summer Program portal at http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/sumprog/courses/0168. NAHDAP is sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. This workshop is offered through the ICPSR Summer Program.
