MIDUS Open Science Policy
For researchers’ convenience, below are links to MIDUS survey field reports and weighting documentation:
In addition to the publicly-available data at ICPSR, the MIDUS Portal offers researchers access to rich searchable variable-level metadata, longitudinal harmonization information, and the ability to download customized datasets and codebooks.
MIDUS Genomics Repository
MIDUS has a variety of genetic data for the Core, Refresher, and MIDJA samples. This page
explains which data are publicly available via the Portal and which are restricted access via the MIDUS Genomics Repository.
MIDUS Neuroimaging and Psychophysiological Repository
MIDUS has neuroimaging and psychophysiological data for the Core and Refresher samples. This page
explains which data are publicly available via the Portal and which are restricted access via the MIDUS Neuroscience Repository. We are currently working on making the raw psychophysiological data from MIDUS 2, 3, and Refresher available and will update accordingly when they are.
MIDUS Geocoded Data
MIDUS does not release any direct geographic identifiers in its publicly available datasets. However, the MIDUS Administrative Core does allow appending external contextual data to MIDUS at different geographic strata without divulging actual location. For more details about this process, please review this
COMING SOON: MIDUS-CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) linked data
MIDUS will soon have CMS-linked data for decedents in the Core sample. This page provides description of available data and will provide guidelines for requesting access to the data once available.
