Genetics Data Harmonization

Revised January 2018

NIDA developed a series of core elements for assessing and harmonizing demographic information and substance use history for genetic studies. These questions were collated from a variety of current, validated questionnaires that align with domains that are of interest to NIDA. The primary question of these domains is most representative of the domain. Secondary questions are also listed, along with their corresponding instruments. Clicking on a domain will open a page to the domain question and provide a choice of instruments. These instruments can be used to capture data relevant for that question. In some cases, several instruments are appropriate; in other cases, there are one or none.

NIDA strongly encourages all applicants to discuss how these core elements are addressed in their data sharing plan by either assessing them directly or indirectly by suggested proxy measures.
