NAHDAP released the PATH Study Wave 2 Restricted-Use Files on March 15, 2017. As with the Wave 1 RUF, the Wave 2 RUF is also accessed via the ICPSR Virtual Data Enclave.
To apply for access to the RUFs, please use the "apply online" link in the Access Notes at http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR36231.
If you have already been using the Wave 1 RUF and want to add access to the Wave 2 RUF to your current VDE project, please send a description (a brief paragraph) that explains why the Wave 2 data are needed for your project and how they will be used. Email this description to email@example.com. Please also review your IRB document. Does it limit your access to the Wave 1 data? Would you like to take the opportunity to expand your project's scope at the same time of adding the Wave 2 data, e.g., add youth or adult data, add other tobacco products to your analyses? If either, please also send an updated IRB document with your description. Once approved, we will post the requested Wave 2 data to your VDE workspace and notify you when the data are available to you.
Please email any questions about access to the Wave 1 or Wave 2 RUF to NAHDAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
