SAGE is a data and research platform that enables the secondary use of data related to child and youth development, health and well-being. It currently contains research data, and at a later stage we aim to also house administrative and community service delivery data. Technical infrastructure and governance processes are in place to ensure ethical use and the privacy of participants. This dataverse provides metadata for the various data holdings available in SAGE (Secondary Analysis to Generate Evidence), a research data repository based in Edmonton Alberta and an intiative of PolicyWise for Children & Families. In general, SAGE contains data holdings too sensitive for open access. Each study lists a security level which indicates the procedure required to access the data.

Numerous studies on gender relations and gender equality policy in academia regularly produce research data that could be useful for a secondary analysis and for other research topics. At present, only a small amount of research data that was explicitly collected on gender relations in academia is archived. Long-term surveys such as graduate studies or social surveys on students are also available to be used in gender-specific studies. CEWS would like to support researchers in their search for research data and at the same time motivate them to archive data from their own projects and thus make them accessible to other researchers by providing search options at GESIS and other data-providing institutions as well as basic information on data archiving.
