Balancing Data Sharing and Protection: The COVID Measures Archive at ICPSR

Balancing Data Sharing and Protection: The COVID Measures Archive at ICPSR Online

We love data at ICPSR, but what can we do when data can’t be shared? Data depositors, users, and archives all struggle with the challenge of balancing open data sharing with protections for confidential, sensitive, or proprietary research data. The Social, Behavioral, and Economic COVID Coordinating Center (SBE CCC) at ICPSR is tackling this problem in our recently launched COVID measures archive. Unlike many other archives at ICPSR, the COVID measures archive is a repository for both data and metadata – a system that allows depositors to share data when they can, or when they can’t, to enhance the findability and accessibility of their data by sharing variable-level metadata only. Data and metadata are both interoperable within the COVID measures archive and discoverable in the larger ICPSR data catalog. The COVID measures archive is piloting this approach specifically for studies of the social, behavioral, and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join SBE CCC for a tour of the COVID measures archive and an exploration of the ways in which data depositors and users benefit from it.

This webinar is free and open to the public. This webinar will be recorded and the recording will be sent to all registrants.
