Project: We are working on an EPA/HSE funded project entitled Green and blue spaces and health: a health-led approach (2016-SE- DS-14) and we are looking at modelling the relationships between different health indicators and potential access to green and blue infrastructure (GBI) across two different time-periods. We have identified GUI as a useful means to pick up on longitudinal health data for a sub-section of society, namely children, and to additionally access, through GUI, changes in children’s health from ages 9 to 13. Given that there is a form of spatial tag with the data, we can then model – for selected areas/scales – the potential relationship between children’s health and modelled access to GBI.

Project: I am asked to use SPSS in a sample dataset and write an essay for assessment as part of my EDD programme.  The following survey questions and the related demographics are of interest to me as I run a campus student volunteering programme: Which of the following have you done or do you plan to do before you graduate from your institution…Community service or volunteer work, how much has your experience at this institution contributed to your knowledge, skills and personal development in the following areas…Being an informed and active citizen (societal/political/community).

Project: I am a scientist working as part of the Gateway to Global Aging web resource and will be working to harmonize the psychosocial constructs across the HRS family of studies, including TILDA. This work is directed by Dr. Jinkook Lee at USC, and I am working in collaboration with Dr. Jacqui Smith at the University of Michigan to harmonize the psychosocial data.  As we aim to harmonize as much data as possible, we request access to the full datasets, to allow for complete searches for potential variables and scales. We will use this to add to the current Harmonized dataset, and will also work on our own publications using the harmonized psychosocial data across studies.

Description of project only

 

Project(2019): Currently I am working on applying profile methods, such as cluster analysis, latent class analysis and latent transition analysis, to the Irish longitudinal dataset Growing Up in Ireland as part of my PhD.  I would like to apply these profiling methods to multiple lifestyle behaviour variables available in the TILDA study and investigate the relationships between the identified profiles and other health related and socio-economic correlates.  It is also of interest to use latent transition analysis to track how the identified profile change between wave 1, wave 2 and wave 3.

Description of project only

 

Project (2016):  My immediate need for the dataset is to have it for the use in workshop geared towards working with TILDA dataset, that is to be held on Friday 9th September, called: 'Hands-on workshop using the harmonised TILDA dataset' and organised in Trinity College Dublin.

Project: The TILDA data will be used to inform the protocol of the CRNINI-PEI Research Initiative. I would like to examine how the TILDA team prepared their data with the intention of preparing our CRNINI-PEI data to be compatible for comparative analysis by new users.

 

Description of project only

 

Project (2017): The purpose of this project is to construct harmonised set of data across countries, comparing TILDA against corresponding data sets such as HRS, ELSA, SHARE, or KLoSA. As a result, it would be possible to provide an outline of data sets, which same analyses can be applied, along with more details about corresponding variables collected in each data set. Such documentation will also contribute to generalisation of existing research and assessment of external validity of results found under specific context and environment of a specific country.

Project: As the research assistant at UCD-CSTAR, we are beginning a contract with the HSE to analyse the Healthy Ireland RMF. We need the AMFs of the studies: Healthy Ireland, GUI, TILDA and SLAN for comparing and contrasting along with establishing trends from the past to current where possible.
