Scientific Questions Being Studied

Purpose: Exploratory

All of Us represents the first large, longitudinal health data set that includes tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ identified people. I am interested to see what I can find here that I could use to craft a research question that has until now gone unanswered - and there are so many such health-related questions because LGBTQ+ populations have been under-studied or studies about them have been used to confirm biased assumptions. Other sources of LGBTQ+ health data, such as those from the Generations study, are on ICPSR but the level of granularity that I seek is not public information and my institution was unwilling to enter into a data-sharing agreement with them. So, presently I am a data explorer as well as a researcher who identifies as a member of the populations that I intend to study. I am unable to be more specific than this right now, but I will update this information once I move out of the exploratory stage of my research.
