CELDAC Announces New Data Sets

The Comparative Effectiveness Large Dataset Analysis Core (CELDAC) at UCSF seeks to improve access to local, state, and national data sets to support research on a wide range of health and health care topics, including the comparative effectiveness of different clinical interventions and of different methods for financing and organizing care.

As part of that effort, CELDAC has announced that  new data is now available for at no cost to UCSF researchers:

  • National Inpatient Sample 2010
  • Area Resource Files 2011
  • State Emergency Department Databases: CA 2010, FL 2010, HI 2010, NC 2010
  • State Inpatient Databases: CA 2010, FL 2010, NC 2010

“CELDAC helps researchers identify and obtain large public data sets that are relevant to their research questions.” says Janet M. Coffman, MA, MPP, PhD, director of the CELDAC initiative. “Researchers at UCSF are using these data sets to conduct preliminary analyses for grant proposals, and to carry out research that will help identify effective strategies for improving health and health care services.”
