Secondary datasets such as national surveys and administrative data are valuable resources for testing hypotheses and generating national-level statistics about disability and rehabilitation related-issues. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to identify what datasets are available and what data are most appropriate for addressing a specific research interest.

This presentation will introduce two innovative web-based resources designed to help researchers learn:

  • What datasets related to disability and rehabilitation are out there?
  • What topics are covered in each dataset?
  • What are the dataset strengths and limitations?
  • How do I access the datasets?
  • How to link to the University of Michigan Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and Research (ADDEP)

The Rehabilitation Dataset Directory is a browse-able/searchable database providing an overview, description, sample and other pertinent information for nearly 60 datasets. The Rehabilitation Research Cross-dataset Variable Catalog allows the exploration of variables organized by topics (including disability and health conditions, healthcare, health behaviors and more) simultaneously across 6 major datasets.

The tools were developed by the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability (YTI) at Cornell University in collaboration with the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB). This work was funded by a sub-contract to YTI through funding from The National Institutes of Health - National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (No. R24 HD065702) a grant funded to the UTMB Center for Rehabilitation Research using Large Datasets.
