Accra, Ghana, 1st July 2017 – The International Network for the Demographic Evaluation of Population and Their Health (INDEPTH) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) announces IMPORTANT UPDATES to the Core Micro Datasets and Documentation on the INDEPTH Data Repository (www.indepth-ishare.org) and on its associated data visualization website, INDEPTHStats (www.indepth-ishare.org/indepthstats). These are two unique online data archives that continue to build and strengthen capacity for research data management, health and scientific research in LMICs as well as improving access to fully documented high quality longitudinal datasets by the scientific community and health policy makers worldwide. Moreover, these datasets also represent a valuable teaching resource..

At the completion of this year’s updates, the INDEPTH Data Repository, launched in 2013, would hold data on over 1.9 million individuals and more than 31 million person-years of observation representing the first harmonised database of longitudinal population-based data from LMICs (for a total of 85 published datasets since inception).

The INDEPTH Resource and Training Centre has shared the newly designed INDEPTH Strategic Plan 2017-2021. Please see it at this link: INDEPTH Strategic Plan 2017 - 2021

The INDEPTH Data Repository is an online archive of fully documented high-quality longitudinal datasets from INDEPTH member Health and Demographic Surveillance System (HDSS) centres. It is the first repository that specializes in longitudinal population-based data from LMICs.
