Large Data Sets in Nursing Research- RUL

introduction to existing data set sources that might be used for secondary analysis by nurse researchers

Selected Data Set Databases

          The large data set databases described on the following pages are selected ones only.  For your convenience, I've divided them into two categories, administrative and clinical. 

If you don’t see any data sets that seem appropriate to your research question, please consider the following:

  • Search the journal indexes for secondary analysis in your area of interest  (see information in next tab)
  • Look for data set availability on the websites for appropriate government agencies and professional associations
