War Ledger Data, 1870-1974

This study examines the relationship between national power and war. In the first dataset, the conditions preceding the outbreak of war are examined. In particular, the links between national growth and the onset of war are addressed. The second dataset contains variables which measure national capabilities and estimate political capacities. The third dataset relates to the consequences of war in terms of national power and growth. The final two datasets concern nuclear deterrence: the fourth dataset contains crisis data to test whether deterrence works, and the last dataset contains information on U.S. and U.S.S.R. defense expenditures in order to establish if the two major nuclear powers are in a nuclear arms race.

This dataset is available through the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database which provides search and browsing access to abstracts and data sets in the world's largest archive of computerized social science data. Search or browse title of study, principal investigator, words in abstract, or study number.

Prevalence, Context, and Reporting of Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault on Campus of Two Large Public Universities in the United States, 2005-2006

 The primary research objective of this study was to examine the prevalence, nature, and reporting of various types of sexual assault experienced by university students in an effort to inform the development of targeted intervention strategies. In addition, the study had two service-oriented objectives: (1) to educate students about various types of sexual assault, how they can maximize their safety, and what they can do if they or someone they know has been victimized and (2) to provide students with information about the campus and community resources that are available should they need assistance or have any concerns or questions. The study involved a Web-based survey of random samples of undergraduate students at two large public universities, one located in the South (University 1) and one located in the Midwest (University 2).

For the first time in over a decade, public-use data files available are available for the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN). The DAWN is a nationally representative public health surveillance system that continuously monitors hospital drug-related emergency department (ED) visits and drug-related deaths reported by select coroner and medical examiner offices across the country.

The 2008 DAWN ED public-use data and documentation files are available for download  through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Data Archive Web site. Variables in DAWN provide details on the ED visit, including type of case, case disposition, drug involvement in the ED visit, route of administration, and the number of unique drugs reported. A metropolitan area indicator is included for the metropolitan areas that DAWN oversamples. Through SAMHDA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is planning to also release DAWN data starting from 2004 to 2007 and 2009 onwards in the upcoming year.

This dataset is available through the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database which provides search and browsing access to abstracts and data sets in the world's largest archive of computerized social science data.
