The Carolina Population Center recently opened its Triangle Federal Statistical Research Data Center (RDC) in Chapel Hill, and is offering an opportunity for researchers within the UNC System.

Through the Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) program, the Census Bureau allows researchers with approved proposals to perform statistical analysis on non-public microdata from the Census Bureau’s economic, health, and demographic censuses and surveys. These datasets are among the largest and most important sources of statistical information in the US, and many of them can only be accessed through a FSRDC.

This is free to all faculty and graduate student researchers affiliated with a UNC System school.

More information about the RDC and its resources can be found here and here.

Anyone interested in using the RDC for research can contact them here.
