Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health and Eating (FLASHE) Study Webinars

The National Cancer Institute has hosted a number of webinars on topics related to the Family, Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) study. Browse them below to learn more about the study and how to use its data and tools.

Niall Bolger, Ph.D. exit disclaimer, and Jean-Philippe (J-P) Laurenceau, Ph.D. exit disclaimer, introduce viewers to cross-sectional, dyadic analysis using data from the Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) study. Dyadic data present analytic challenges because they have various sources of interdependence (e.g. non-independence between members of the dyad such as a parent and a child). Flexible analytic tools (e.g. path modeling, multilevel modeling) can accommodate these complexities. Viewers will gain introductory-level understanding of dyadic data analysis. Additional resources, such as sample code for preparing data files and conducting dyadic analyses are available on the FLASHE dyadic resources page.

  • Publicly available data sets and resources;
  • methodology and dyadic features of the study design;
  • example findings, such as correlates of health behavior and associations between parents and adolescents on psychosocial and behavioral variables; and
  • opportunities for using FLASHE data.

  • The recently-released GeoFLASHE data set, neighborhood characteristics calculated for use with the FLASHE survey data.
