The FFCWS is the longest running birth cohort study in the US based on a national probability sample.
This workshop will introduce both new and more experienced data users to:
Plenty of workshop time will be devoted to Q&A and lab time where participants can explore the data
and metadata and receive guidance from the facilitators. Our goals for this workshop are to provide a
solid background for working with FFCWS data and to support participants as they begin variable
exploration and selection relevant to their own research questions.
For PAA attendees who are new to the FFCWS, this workshop will familiarize participants with the
history of the study and data available, and enable them to begin working with FFCWS data for their
own research. For experienced users of FFCWS data, this workshop will introduce them to newly
released FFCWS data along with new documentation and metadata designed to improve the efficiency
and user experience of pursuing research with FFCWS.
