List of Approved De-Identified Publicly Available Datasets

Version Date August 28, 2015

UW-Madison's HRPP has determined that the data in the publicly available datasets below either never contained, or have been stripped of, identifiers. As a result, research using this data does not meet the definition of "human subjects" research and does not require IRB review, as described in the De-Identified Publicly Available Datasets Guidance . Please note, research projects that merge more than one dataset in such a way that individuals may be identified WILL require prior IRB approval.
