Secondary Datasets Available for Use in WIC Research

This collection serves as a directory of secondary datasets related to WIC available for researcher use. NWA maintains an active list of these datasets, which are all either publicly available or available upon request. Details of the dataset locations, WIC measures, and sampling information are included. NWA updates this list regularly, so please email Christina Chauvenet, NWA’s Senior Manager of Research and Policy Analysis if you have suggestions of datasets to add to this list at cchauvenet@nwica.org. NWA can also help guide researchers on how projects can best be leveraged to support WIC policy and programs. Researchers can complete a brief survey and be in contact with NWA about your research project.
