Information about the data

The website has a public section(Summary Statistics) and a private section(Individual Level Data). If you have not signed the agreement you will have access to the public section only. The public section has histogram charts and a section with summary statistics. The section with the statistics allows queries very similar to those you will be able to access in the explore section, but shows only the count values of the number of individuals that satisfy it, instead of retrieving the actual values.

Data Access

To get access to the data you will need to sign disease specific distribution agreements with NIMH. Once NIMH approves access, you will be able to query and explore all data sets. Please read here for information on how to obtain access or click here for contact information.
