The CHP Data Catalogue project aims to create a data archive of existing datasets used in health policy research, with the goal of promoting increased collaboration and data sharing among researchers at Columbia University. The data catalogue will act as a common space for collecting and reviewing available administrative research resources, with a focus on large, administrative secondary data sets, novel administrative data sets, and primary data, in order to help Columbia University researchers discover and potentially re-use existing data.
This project does not aim to share the researcher’s data, nor does it work to transport data or grant access to data on behalf of owners. It is not a data repository. Rather, this project aims to catalogue the types of data that Columbia University researchers are using in order to enhance communication and foster potential collaboration.
