Description
  • Abstract


    The Intermediate Data Structure (IDS) provides a standard format for storing and sharing individual-level longitudinal life-course data. Once the data are in the IDS format, a standard set of programs can be used to extract data for analysis, facilitating the analysis of data across multiple databases. However, individual-level longitudinal life-course data are currently held in many different databases and stored in many different formats, and the process of translating data into IDS can be long and tedious. The IDS Transposer is a software tool that automates this process for source data in many formats, allowing database administrators to specify how their datasets are to be represented in IDS.
