Secondary data sources like the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and the National Longitudinal Survey on Adolescent Health (Add Health) can be used to do research while saving you time and money.

In this webinar hosted by ASHA’s Research Council, you can learn the ins and outs of secondary data analysis including:

  • What it is
  • Why you should or should not do it
  • What things to think about before, during, and after you analyze the data

Dr. Shannon Michael and Dr. Danice Eaton, both from the CDC, will cover these topics and more, using YRBS data as an example to explain how to get started with secondary data analysis. The webinar is approved for CHES continuing education units.
