[ICPSR] Free workshops on ICPSR data - apply by May 20!


Sponsored workshops featuring ICPSR data



As part of the ICPSR Summer Program curriculum, every year we offer short workshops specializing in data housed at ICPSR. These workshops are typically paid for by sponsors, and free to attend! Because they are free, and because they focus on very specific topics from our archives, there is an application process for admittance.


As with almost all of our courses this year, these workshops are fully hybrid. Attend in-person or virtually!




Exploring and Analyzing Monitoring the Future Data: A Primer



·  Deborah D. Kloska, University of Michigan

·  Devi Putcha, University of Michigan

·  Yvonne Terry-McElrath, University of Michigan

Dates: June 27-30, 2022

Format: Hybrid (in-person or virtual)


This four-day workshop will introduce participants to the Monitoring The Future cross-sectional data (public-use and restricted-use) and the restricted-use longitudinal panel data available from the ICPSR/NAHDAP archives. The workshop will cover the content of MTF public release and restricted-use data, study documentation, data management and analysis planning, and, as time and interest allow, a variety of analytic techniques appropriate for data derived from a complex sample design. The workshop format will be a combination of in-person lecture and synchronous virtual participation via Zoom, discussions, and demonstrations followed by lab sessions for participants to work with a subset of the MTF restricted-use data.


Application deadline: May 20, 2022

Dates: July 19-21, 2022

Format: Hybrid (in-person or virtual)


This three-day workshop will support participants in planning and conducting secondary data analysis using data from the Health and Medical Care Archive (HMCA). Sessions will include an in-depth overview of the National Longitudinal Survey of Public Health Systems. Instructors will describe how the data have been linked with other datasets, including area health resource data, vital statistics, and healthcare claims, in order to study the determinants and effects of changes in public health delivery systems. Each afternoon will include hands-on workshop sessions that include guided exercises and consultations for exploring your own research interests. Early career participants are especially encouraged to apply.
