The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) recently released two videos that provide users with step-by-step instructions on how to navigate NCCOR’s Catalogue and Registry online tools.
These animated videos describe the purpose and functions of the tools and demonstrate how to use the Catalogue and Registry to search for relevant measures, data resources, or surveillance systems. Check out the videos here.
The Catalogue currently contains more than 85 systems, which can be filtered by various system characteristics: level (e.g., individual, school, macro/policy), scope, key variables (e.g., weight-related, diet-related), age groups, racial/ethnic groups, design, and cost.
The Registry currently contains more than 800 measures. These can be filtered by domain, measure type, age, and context. Useful details for each measure are captured in the Registry, such as validity and reliability, protocol, cost, and more.
