Data and Modeling Core

Data Modeling Core Request Form

The overall objective of the Data and Modeling (DM) Core is to provide CPHR researchers with the data acquisition and management, biostatistics and modeling, and high performance computing (HPC) support they need to successfully conduct population health research in rural communities. The DM Core will provide data acquisition, mathematical and statistical consulting, and computational support for the Center investigators and research projects focused on children’s health risks and outcomes in rural communities throughout Montana and surrounding areas. Whereas there are many examples of modeling and biostatistical analysis approaches for health outcomes based on sociodemographic, environmental, and individual health information in more urban areas, rural communities present unique challenges from a data analytics perspective. In particular, rural communities are more insular, more sparsely populated, have more limited environmental monitoring, and often have less access to health-related resources. Such factors will require innovative and high performance computing (HPC) modeling approaches when estimating disease transmission rates, spatio-temporal effects of climate, air quality, and population demographics on health outcomes.
