The Michigan Research Data Center: Enabling access to confidential, unpublished data from the federal statistical system
Co-Director of the Michigan Federal Statistical Research Data Center
The Michigan Research Data Center is one of 31 Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (FSRDCs) around the country, providing access to unpublished data from a growing number of federal statistical agencies. These include the Census Bureau, National Center for Health Statistics, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics, among others. We also provide access to unique data linkages such as the Census-Enhanced Health and Retirement Study, Criminal Justice Administrative Records System, and UMETRICS data. In this talk, we will outline the wide array of data available in FSRDCs, highlight ISR research projects using these data, and describe the process for accessing these data.
PSC faculty, students, and postdocs are encouraged to attend!
