The Washington Heights Community Survey is a 2015 community telephone sample of over 2000 participants that contains a large number of validated social science instruments. This dataset was administered to a representative sample of residents of a low income neighborhood in New York City. It also contains important health outcomes, such as depression measured using the PHQ.
The General Social Survey (GSS) linked to the National Death Index (NDI) file (GSS-NDI file) dissemination has been transferred to the NORC General Social Survey PI team. The NORC team will review the current GSS-NDI file for deductive disclosure risk and NORC will release a new version of the GSS cumulative file that includes a de-identified set of NDI variables that have undergone treatment using established statistical disclosure limitation techniques. The NORC review of the data and de-identification of the data will take some time as NORC conducts its deductive disclosure review. Researchers who would like to obtain the data while the review is in progress are encouraged to apply for access to the linked GSS-NDI file using the GSS process for working with GSS Sensitive data (http://gss.norc.org/documents/other/ObtainingGSSSensitiveDataFiles.pdf). Also all requests for access to the geocoded GSS cumulative NDI linked data file that were received by Columbia have been transferred to NORC at this time and will be redirected to the to the GSS sensitive data application process. If you have questions please contact Jaesok Son at NORC (Jaesok Son Son-Jaesok@norc.org).
