PATH Study Biomarkers of Potential Harm Released, Other Updates to the BRUF Collection

NAHDAP released an update to the PATH Study Biomarker Restricted-Use Files on September 28, 2018. Apply for access at https://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR36840 .

Specifically, the data and documentation for five panel assays (F2PGa, hsCRP, IL6, siCAM, and Fibro) were added to the collection. Additionally, data and documentation for the master linkage file was updated. The respondent's local time zones were converted to Eastern Time and the variable R01R_A_URINE_LASTURINATION was recalculated. One case was corrected for variable R01R_A_URINE_NEQ_TDIFF.
