MIDUS is a U.S. national, longitudinal study which focuses on the role of psychological, social, and biological factors in accounting for age-related variations in health and well-being among two national samples of Americans.

The MIDUS data are available through NACDA (the data archive on aging populations), part of ICPSR. MIDUS and NACDA are both funded by the National Institute on Aging. MIDUS is the most frequently downloaded dataset from NACDA, and one of the most frequently downloaded data series from ICPSR.

This free webinar provides an overview of the MIDUS data series we have archived within NACDA and will guide users on how to discover MIDUS resources, as well as highlight the research potential of this multi-scope, longitudinal collection. A substantial portion of the talk will demonstrate how Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) tools have enabled MIDUS to adhere to FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reproducible) principals.

This webinar will feature:
- A presentation about MIDUS (background and general use) directly from researcher and Co-PI, Dr. Barry Radler from the University of Wisconsin-Madison
- How to access MIDUS data from NACDA, both public and restricted data versions
- Information about the MIDUS Colectica Portal

Participants will also have the opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions.
This webinar is free and open to the public.
