Northwestern University (NU) personnel Provide data linking expertise to the Collaborating Consortium of Cohorts Producing NIDA Opportunities (C3PNO). In particular, NU personnel will provide recommendations on psychological, behavioral, health domains that are amenable to psychometric linking, such that scores can be compared to one another on a common metric. In addition, NU personnel will conduct analyses to illustrate the methodology of psychometric linking in a commonly assessed health domain, such as depression. NU personnel will help design supplementary data collection, and conduct analyses, to link selected substance use measures. NU personnel will provide leadership and assistance on manuscript writing that report on these activities. Finally, NU personnel will provide review and advice for researchers affiliated with C3PNO cohorts who wish to undertake similar linking studies independently.
