Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The aim of this study was to determine if psychosocial wellbeing predicts the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of people with Usher syndrome.
Ninety UK-resident adults with Usher syndrome were recruited through deafblind-related charities, support groups and social groups. All participants took part in a survey that measured their physical and mental HRQOL, depressive symptoms, loneliness and social support. Measured confounders included age, sex and health-related characteristics. Hierarchical multiple linear regression analyses examined the association of each psychosocial wellbeing indicator with both physical and mental HRQOL while controlling for confounders in a stepwise manner.
