The Interactive Diet and Activity Tracking in AARP (IDATA) is a biomarker validation study of internet-based and conventional self-reports for assessing diet and physical activity. IDATA has the registration number NCT03268577.

Collection of data started in early 2012 and ended in late 2013. 1,082 people were screened by phone, screened at the clinic and consented to use of their data.

Submit an IDATA Application

To gain access to available IDATA data and/or biospecimens, you must submit a project proposal. These are reviewed by NCI. If your project is approved, you will be required to complete a Data Transfer Agreement (and a Material Transfer Agreement, if applicable) before you will be granted access.

There are two types of IDATA project. You may click one to begin a new project proposal.

IDATA data is available to the general scientific community. You may begin a new project for IDATA data (no biospecimens).

Biospecimens for the IDATA study are also available. You may begin a preliminary application for IDATA biospecimens.
