Bangladesh Violence Against Women Survey, 2015

The Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics has conducted the second round of the Violence Against Women (VAW) survey in 2015. The main objective of the survey was to generate official national statistics on the prevalence of violence against women and to observe the overall situation including the forms of violence along with their magnitude in Bangladesh.

**PI-Provided Abstract:** Background: Vitamin E (vitE) is hypothesized to attenuate age-related decline in pulmonary function. Objective: We investigated the association between change in plasma vitE (∆vitE) and pulmonary function decline (forced expiratory volume in the first second [FEV1]) and examined genetic and non-genetic factors associated with ∆vitE. Design: We studied 1,144 men randomized to vitE in the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial. ∆vitE was the difference between baseline and year 3 vitE concentrations...

Reproducibility Package for: Sources of Family Income Across Childhood in Families with Nonresident Fathers

Paula Fomby, Hope Harvey & Kelly Musick
PI Provided Abstract: Unpartnered mothers rely upon a variety of formal and informal sources of income to support their coresident minor children. We build upon work that has focused on selective populations and shorter time horizons to describe the family income sources that U.S. women and their minor children rely upon over up to 17 years following an unpartnered birth or union dissolution (Panel Study of Income Dynamics 2001-2017, N=12,369 person-year records from 3,164 children)....

Reproduction Materials for: On the Timing of Relevant Weather Conditions in Agriculture

Zhiyun Li & Ariel Ortiz-Bobea
**PI-Provided Abstract**: A growing literature is analyzing the effects of weather on agricultural outcomes. In these studies, constructing weather variables requires researchers to define a “season”, a period over which weather conditions are considered relevant to the outcome. We explore the consequences of assuming an incorrect season in such analyses. We show in simulations that imposing an incorrect season introduces non-classical measurement error in weather regressors, causing unknown biases. We propose an approach to recover...

Student Responses on Critical Thinking Instruments in Biology and Physics in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021

Michelle Smith, N.G. Holmes & Ashley Heim
This data was collected to evaluate the efficacy of critical thinking assessment questions to probe students’ critical thinking skills in the context of biology and physics. The researchers used two research-based standardized critical thinking instruments known as the Biology Lab Inventory of Critical Thinking in Ecology (Eco-BLIC) and Physics Lab Inventory of Critical Thinking (PLIC). These instruments provide experimental scenarios and pose questions asking students to evaluate what to trust and what to do regarding...
