NCCOR seeks input on datasets to include in the Catalogue of Surveillance Systems
November 9, 2015
The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) is seeking recommendations for datasets to be considered for inclusion in its Catalogue of Surveillance Systems, a tool that provides one-stop access to more than 100 publicly available data sources relevant to childhood obesity research.
The Catalogue aims to increase efficiency, effectiveness, and innovation in obesity research by enabling researchers to:
- Identify data resources related to childhood obesity
- Compare attributes across systems
- Link to other resources of interest
Datasets in the Catalogue include information on obesity-related health behaviors, outcomes, and determinants as well as policies and environmental factors.
To be included, surveillance systems must: be relevant to childhood obesity research; provide access to publicly available raw data gathered in the United States; and provide access to data that has been released in the past 10 years.
