Data Collections

Contemporary population research often involves applications of sophisticated analytic models to large, complex data sets. Using innovative data collection methods and approaches, DUPRI researchers are leaders in developing key data sets used to expand demographic knowledge. By linking these data sets to a wide array of administrative records, biomarkers and other measures in human or non-human primate populations, DUPRI's data collections broaden the scope of survey research.

The Table below illustrates major data collections and innovations at DUPRI. For additional information, email contactdupri@duke.edu.
