New NCCOR infographics illuminate global reach
April 5, 2012
The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) recently released new infographics pertaining to global usage of its Catalogue of Surveillance Systems and Measures Registry online tools.
Two identically structured infographics boldly elucidate the top international users accessing the Catalogue and Registry, as well as additional countries that have used the resources since their respective launches last year. As the maps depict, the web tools are accessed from North and South America, Australia, and parts of Europe and Asia. Check them out here.
The Catalogue currently contains more than 85 systems, which can be sorted, or “filtered” by various system characteristics: level (e.g., individual, school, macro/policy), scope, key variables (e.g., weight-related, diet-related), age groups, racial/ethnic groups, design, and cost.
The Registry currently contains more than 800 measures. These can be filtered by domain, measure type, age, and context. Useful details for each measure are captured in the registry, such as validity and reliability, protocol, and cost.
