PATH Study Data User Workshop: Apply by 5/31 for the Summer 2024 Events

Join us in person July 29-30 or virtually August 15-16

May 2, 2024

The FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) and NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) are sponsoring a Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study Data User Workshop to further the understanding and use of PATH Study data files. CTP and NIDA are offering an in-person option in July and a virtual-only option in August:

The free course is designed for academic faculty and research professionals, as well as graduate students interested in tobacco regulatory science, tobacco prevention, or translation research. FDA and NIH’s PATH Study is a rich data source for researchers. 

The workshop will combine lecture, discussion, and exercises, and it will use hands-on examples to help attendees better understand the PATH Study sample design and weighting. Participants will learn how to conduct longitudinal analyses to estimate change over time, as well as pseudo cross-sectional analyses to estimate prevalence.

Both workshop sessions (in-person or virtual-only) offer the same content. To attend, please apply by May 31. Enrollment is limited and admission is not guaranteed. For more information and to apply, please visit the 2024 ICPSR Summer Program Registration Portal
