Conducting Research using Restricted-Access Data through the Stanford Federal Statistical Research Data Center

June 5, 2017 - 11:00am
Li Ka Shing Center, Berg Hall A
291 Campus Drive
Stanford, CA 94305

The Stanford Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) allows qualified researchers to securely use restricted-access data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  For example, researchers can access detailed geographic indicators that are not publicly available in data such as the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

Professor Marcella Alsan (Stanford School of Medicine) will discuss the research she is conducting at the Stanford FSRDC on the relationship between mistrust of the health care system and health-seeking behavior. By using geographic indicators in the NHIS, she is examining the timing of African American men’s visits to physicians before and after the disclosure of the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in 1972.  

Jonathan Fisher (Stanford University) and Emi Lesure (Census Bureau) will discuss other relevant research that has used the FSRDC network and the specific data available.

The presenters will speak for about 40 minutes and then take questions for the remaining time.  Come learn about this valuable on-campus resource!
