Studies focus primarily on health and well being of infants, children, adolescents, and reproductive age adults. Primary duties involve obtaining longitudinal population data of various types, sizes, and complexity, reading files into SAS using methods developed by our group to maintain longitudinal consistency, constructing variables, maintaining several large format libraries and creating new format libraries, and maintaining documentation standards. Most work is in the data step. Clean, well-documented SAS code is critical. Data summarization and data linkage are key parts of the process. Work with others to identify longitudinal analysis and reporting strategies (statistical and visual) and take the lead in developing macros to facilitate those strategies. Prepare tables, charts, reports, and other visual and written materials to interpret and communicate data and results.


We have California population data from 1983 forward from various state agencies. Most work is in the data step, importing, classifying, and restructuring complex longitudinal data of different types. Linkage is both within datasets, over time and across to other datasets. Good background with complex data structure and linkage required. The position reports to the Research Director.
