DAEDAC—A National Archive Service Assisting Social Scientists in Drug Abuse Research
The Drug Abuse Epidemiology Data Center (DAEDAC) is a NIDA-supported, non-profit research archive established in 1973 as a central depository for the collection, preservation, and dissemination of data relevant to drug abuse epidemiology. DAEDAC has two comprehensive data bases which can be used to support the efforts of researchers in their studies of drug use and abuse, and to assist policymakers in establishing drug policies. The Aggregate File currently contains over 4200 titles representing sets of aggregate and summary data reported in the literature since 1960. Searches of this computerized file conducted to investigators’ specifications produce printouts containing not only bibliographical citations, descriptors and abstracts, but also tabular data from original drug reports. The Original Data File has over 75 computer tapes containing raw data from notable major drug studies which are available for secondary analysis.
