Secondary Data Analysis

Secondary data analysis is a collaborative scheme in which users can use the data collected by Sleman HDSS in their research project. Users can determine the research topic they want and adjust it with the available variables in the Sleman HDSS data collection. In addition, it is important to ensure the novelty of the research plan. Therefore, before applying for data request, users must have a basic understanding of Sleman HDSS’ data collection method, variables availability, and data structure. Also, they have to check the past and ongoing research based on Sleman HDSS data. After their application is approved, the Sleman HDSS data management team will prepare the dataset containing the variables as requested by the user.

Benefits of secondary data analysis:

  • Sleman HDSS vast data collection allowing researchers to explore various demographic and health topics
  • Time, cost, and energy efficient because the data is already available

General requirements:

  1. The latest data is only accessible for the academic community of FKKMK UGM.
  2. Academic community outside of FKKMK UGM are allowed to use Sleman HDSS data, 2 years after data collection.
  3. Data user non-FKKMK UGM are allowed access to the latest data if there are FKKMK lecturer or researchers in their team.
  4. Data user have to show their commitment to publish their work in a reputable journal.
