Datasets and Key Publications Related to Smoking

Shortcut for this page: http://bit.ly/smoking-datasets-and-publications

Introduction

Policy makers and individuals should make decisions about smoking based on quality data and valid analysis. Although there is a wealth of decision materials "around", how does one quickly find and understand the information relevant to their interests?

Semantic web technologies can help bridge this gap by explicitly connecting the necessary resources to provide a web of knowledge that can be navigated by those with different interests, backgrounds, and levels of experience.

Concepts: Web Science, Health informatics
Description:
The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) PopSciGrid Community Health Portal is an evolving platform demonstrating how health behavior, policy, and demographic data can be integrated, visualized, and communicated to empower communities and support new avenues of research and policy for cancer prevention and control. As a proof of concept for cyber-enabled population health research, the PopSciGrid Portal is designed to encourage trans-disciplinary collaboration, data harmonization, and development of new computational methods for disparate health related data.
