AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What is the effect of the individual’s family and community network on health status and health behaviors?

Focusing on the entire cohort, this study seeks to define inter-relationship linkages between the person (“ego”) and other associated participants (“alters”). Previous studies identified linkages through the specification of a family roster and alternate points of contact in the consent process. The relationship data produced would be available for network analysis to determine the impact of the social network on health behaviors, development of disease, and interplay with the environment.

The remaining questions allow you to outline in more detail the information needed to address your research question. The series of questions allow up to five entries. If you have more than five entries, please try to prioritize them and enter the remainder in the final field. When done, click Submit at the bottom. No
