Webinar: Augmenting Health Research through Secondary Data Use: the National Neighborhood Data Archive (NaNDA)
The National Neighborhood Data Archive (NaNDA) is a repository of neighborhood contextual measures -- place-based data that quantifies the physical, demographic, economic, and/or social environment -- used to understand the role of neighborhood context and resources for population health. Most NaNDA contextual measures are created using publicly available data, such as from the Census Bureau. So why would a researcher use NaNDA instead of going directly to the primary data to obtain or create their own contextual measures? In this session, we will discuss case studies from the NaNDA repository that augment and recombine publicly available data to create novel measures to study the role of neighborhoods for health and health inequities.
