Census Research Data Center Program
To improve the data collection efforts of the US Census, this agency has established Research Data Centers (RDCs) across the nation, which grants researchers access to select micro data from the Census Bureau and other statistical agencies. Researchers must first apply for access to the RDC to gain special sworn status from the Census. All research must protect the confidentiality of the data accessed.
Micro-level data from a variety of secure government databases.
Coverage varies depending on the database of interest.
RDC program offers access to a wide range of government data.
RDCs maintain and enhance micro data collected over time. Examples of databases available through this program include: economic, demographic, longitudinal employer-household dynamics, and healthcare data.
