Disclaimer: The findings and conclusions in this paper are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official position of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Grant Support: By the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (contract no. 200-2006-18797).
Potential Financial Conflicts of Interest: None disclosed.
Reproducible Research Statement:Study protocol and statistical code: Available from the authors. Data set: The HOPS is a public-use data set and is available to readers. However, confidentiality protections that govern the HOPS data require authors to strip record identifiers; it will therefore take some time to make these data available. In addition, the CDC's heightened security procedures require persons who want to analyze HOPS data to 1) prepare a written proposal for CDC review and approval, 2) sign confidentiality and data use agreements, 3) conduct analyses in Atlanta, and 4) go through CDC security clearance for access to facilities. The authors would be happy to facilitate these procedures for persons interested in conducting analyses with HOPS project data and welcome these requests.
