Committee on Requests for Personal Data
The Committee on Requests for Personal Data (CORPD) reviews requests involving vital events data to determine if the research serves a valid scientific or public health purpose.
The CORPD form and Data Item Checklists are available below. To request electronic vital statistics data files, you will need to submit a combination of applications to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and CORPD. The CORPD form and the IRB application are to be used in combination when requesting vital statistics data. Please refer to both the Vital Statistics Data Request Procedures page and the IRB Forms & Instructions page.
Note: Variables which provide or imply HIV or STD infection status cannot be provided to agencies outside of DSHS. These data elements should normally be left unchecked.
Once the completed CORPD form and full IRB application has been approved by the Program, one original and 16 copies (double-sided, no staples) of the Applications and relevant Data Item Checklist(s) should be submitted to the Program Contact.
