This document compares selected reference social support instruments. For each instrument, the table addresses the main fields of comparison, i.e. authors, objectives, domains covered, population targeted, time recall, number of items, administration mode, available translations, copyrights, condition of use and references. A P3G-prepared document (2009).

PEDSYS is a database system developed to provide a software environment in which to manage and analyse genetic and demographic data, particularly in relation to pedigree (family-based) data. The system supports integrated collection, management and analysis of constantly evolving data sets. The software and website are supported by the Southwest Foundation For Biomedical Research.
This website presents a database of international, regional and national laws and policies and literature addressing human genetic population research.
This Policy Statement considers the issue of return of results in the specific context of population genomics and addresses possible modalities for such return. Its objectives are to: (1) delineate the particular characteristics of population studies, (2) distinguish the circumstances surrounding access by researchers to such studies, and (3) develop a framework for the return of research results and incidental findings. It is a P3G-CPTP (Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project) Collaboration (2011).

This software performs power and sample size calculations. PS can be used for studies with dichotomous, continuous, or survival response measures. Developed by Drs W.D. Dupont and W.D. Plummer Jr., Department of Biostatistics, based at the Vanderbilt University.
This section of the website is a collection of research questionnaires intended to serve only as models and be adapted by researchers to suit their particular needs. This tool is provided by the National Cancer Institute's Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics.
R is a powerful, flexible, integrated statistical analysis environment that provides analysis, modelling and graphics for data management. R is a programming language equivalent to S and user defined functions provide for an open source route to the rich array of specialist statistical methodology usually vehicled by the S language. StatLib - software and extensions for the S (Splus), and R language provides access to S, SPlus and R functions across a wide range of specialist areas. It was initially written by Robert Gentleman and Ross Ihaka of the Statistics Department of the University of Auckland. Website maintained by the R Foundation.
Part II of this document deals with issues related to defining every step of the survey organization, from the target population to the recruitment per se. Part III contains protocols and operational guidelines for individual measurements and biological samples collection. A European Health Risk Monitoring-written document, the Copyright is reserved for the Finnish National Public Health Institute (2002).
This website is a repository of software dealing with: genetic linkage analysis for human pedigree data, QTL analysis for animal/plant breeding data, genetic marker ordering, genetic association analysis, haplotype construction, pedigree drawing, population genetics and TDT (such as TaggerExternal, HaploviewExternal, ldSelectExternal, PLINKExternal, StructureExternal). A Laboratory of Statistical Genetics-maintained website, based at the Rockefeller University.
This website lists SAS macros which you might need while using the SAS statistical software. Provided by the Bonn University and by the SAS Institute Inc.
