Symposium: Survey research in the study of aging: Possibilities and problems in the use of archival data


Journal Article

A special purpose data archive of theoretically significant data sets relevant to the study of aging and adulthood has now completed its second year of operation at the Duke University Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development. Activities of the Data Archive for Aging and Adult Development (DAAAD) include the identification, cleaning, documentation, and dissemination of relevant data sources to the gerontological and social science research communities.1 Beyond these standard archival functions, additional DAAAD activities include: (1) the provision of substantive as well as technical assistance; (2) the development of user manuals and technical reports; (3) the convening of periodic workshops for training, information exchange, and professional development; and (4) ongoing efforts to evaluate the "state of the art" regarding surveys of the adult population. © 1979 Oxford University Press.
