The International Network for the Demographic Evaluation of Populations and Their Health (INDEPTH) has launched two new data archives that will continue to build and strengthen capacity for research data management and sharing, giving global public health researchers greater access to health and science research in low- and middle-income countries.
The INDEPTH Data Repository is an online archive of high-quality datasets from INDEPTH member health and demographic surveillance systems centers. It is the first data repository that specializes in longitudinal population-based data from low- and middle-income countries.
INDEPTHStats is a website that has been developed by the network and is freely available to the general public. It will contain summary statistics, images and graphs of key health and demographic indicators generated from the INDEPTH member centers.
