Award: Creation of Synthetic Data and Development and Use of Verification Metrics (Survey of Earned Doctorates) (SEDSyn)

Award Date: 10/24/2023
Project Title: Creation of Synthetic Data and Development and Use of Verification Metrics (Survey of Earned Doctorates)
Project Performers: The Urban Institute, RTI, RAND Corporation, Vassar College
Award Amount: $800,000.00
Objective: The objective of this project is to produce a synthetic data file for public use to support a tiered access model, explore the use of synthetic data for evidence-building, and test the use of verification metrics in validating estimates produced from synthetic data. A synthetic dataset does not contain the exact
records of the original dataset, but instead retains the statistical properties of the original dataset, preserving information useful to researchers and their queries. The anonymity of the original dataset is not compromised since synthetic records do not correspond with real ones.
Period of Performance: October 2023 – October 2025
