Discovering Our Data

SAGE holds high-quality research data, community service data, and administrative data related to health and social well-being.

SAGE data are described using metadata (“data about data”) in a custom standard compatible with the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI), the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) and the Government of Alberta Core Content Standard (CORMAP). SAGE’s metadata standard is described in our Metadata Guide.  Our Metadata Mapper links SAGE’s metadata standards and their definitions with the metadata available for each dataset.  Study and variable metadata can be accessed through NADA and the SAGE Dataverse.

Current datasets in SAGE include the following:
