Data Resources

Research is the mechanism by which the Family Data Center achieves its mission and objectives. As a data center, our linked population-based data sets can be analyzed with state-of-the-art methodologies. The Center’s work products and research findings are being used to develop national, state, and local policy to improve family health programs and services by documenting longitudinal outcomes, fiscal impact, and cost effectiveness.


The Family Data Center (FDC) provides the following document, Guide for Researchers Seeking to Use Data at the University of Florida Data Center, to assist with assessing and analyzing data.
