Research Tools

  • Classification of Laws Associated with School Students

    Classification of Laws Associated with School Students (C.L.A.S.S.) is a scoring system that monitors and evaluates state-level school physical education and nutrition policies that have been codified into law.

  • Grid-Enabled Measures

    Grid-Enabled Measures (GEM) is a dynamic web-based database that contains behavioral and social science measures organized by theoretical constructs. GEM is designed to enable researchers to use common measures with the goal of exchanging harmonized data. Through the use of these standardized measures and common elements, prospective meta-analyses will be possible.

  • Small Area Estimates for Cancer Risk Factors & Screening Behaviors

    Model-based estimates for states, counties, and health service areas have been developed based on two surveys, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) and the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). The two surveys are combined using novel statistical methodology.

  • HD*Calc

    The Health Disparities Calculator (HD*Calc) is designed to generate multiple summary measures to evaluate and monitor health disparities. The HD*Calc statistical software can be used either as an extension of SEER*Stat—allowing users to import Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) data—or with other population-based health data.
