The 10/66 Public Data Archive
The 10/66 project aims to create an evidence base to empower advocacy,
raise awareness about dementia and other NCDs,
and ensure that the health and social care needs of older people are anticipated and met.
All investigators in the 10/66 group are committed to establish an anonymised data sharing archive
with monitored public access. Our aim is to maximise the scientific output from the data that
has been collected - to do this we are encouraging investigators external to our group
to consider applying to use the data for secondary analyses of their own devising.
Proposals for access to the data archive are NOW welcome. The current list of either: received proposals, and papers under preparation or published can be downloaded from
click here (in MS Word format) (as of December 2011)
Access will be approved by an oversight committee, consisting of PI's (Principal Investigator) from all 10/66 centres and independent members. The over-riding principle is that consent will not be unreasonably withheld from ethical, scientifically valid proposals*.
Please click here for the recent update on approved data requests.
External investigators will be asked to sign a Data Agreement Form
stipulating the terms and conditions for using the 10/66 dataset. Please Note: A new Agreement Form is required for each new proposal request.
