Scientific Questions Being Studied

We implemented methods to clean and harmonize height and weight data across participating AoU sites. We intend to demonstrate the utility of using these "cleaned" variables instead of raw/originally provided height and/or weight data. We wish to share this data cleaning and harmonization strategy to assist other researchers in their own efforts.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Methods Development

Scientific Approaches

We will compare the use of cleaned versus "raw"/uncleaned height, weight and/or BMI values to demonstrate the impact and utility of using these cleaned values.

Anticipated Findings

We anticipate that use of cleaned height, weight and/or BMI will yield more reasonable clinical results (compared to raw/uncleaned data).

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
