Search documentation for phrase.
Data dictionaries are documents describing data collection forms used to conduct participant interviews, cognitive testing, clinical evaluations, and diagnoses. Several examples of these data dictionaries are available for review.
Some of the data collected in RADC cohort studies are directly compatible with data collected by other ADC's on NACC Uniform Data Set (UDS) forms. The compatible variables have been documented and prepared as standard datasets for distribution through data requests.
