NAHDAP to Host Seconday Data Analysis (SDA) Summer Course Again in 2018

NAHDAP will again host a FREE course in the ICPSR’s Summer Program titled “Secondary Data Analysis and the National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP).” The workshop will be in Ann Arbor from June 4-6, 2018, lead again by Lisa Dierker, Wesleyan University.

This three-day workshop will support participants in planning and conducting secondary data analysis using existing datasets, especially those available from NAHDAP. Each participant’s experience in the workshop will be individualized to her/his own interests, background, and needs. Workshop sessions will include presentations focused on the nuts and bolts of secondary data analysis followed by hands on time in the computer lab to work on your project. Participants need to come prepared to dive into their analyses and make plans that facilitate publication during the course. Early career participants are especially encouraged to apply. People who attended before are welcome to apply to attend again.

Prerequisites: Substantive interest in addiction and/or HIV. Applicants must select a dataset they will work with during the 3 days, develop a research question, and use the dataset's codebook to identify variables they will be using to answer the research question. This information should be included in the cover letter.

Application: Enrollment is limited to 25 participants. Summer Program Registraion Image
