A Next Generation Data Infrastructure to Understand Disparities across the Life Course

This infrastructure proposal aims to further advance capabilities in the social sciences (broadly defined) to collect data on the daily lives of families and individuals. These data will be more accurate, more granular, and more complete than has been possible to obtain in traditional survey-based research until now. The context for this is the Understanding America Study (UAS), the probability-based Internet panel we have been building at USC since 2014. The infrastructure includes the combination of many data types (including survey data, information collected from wearables, contextual data, administrative linkages, ecological momentary assessments, self-recorded narratives, and electronic records of financial transactions), as well as an open communication with the wider research community both in making data available as quickly as possible and in soliciting input about content and methods.
