The New York Census Research Data Center

The New York Census Research Data Center (NYCRDC) operates two secure facilities (at Baruch and Cornell University) that house microdata collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

NYCRDC represents the collaborative effort of the Census Bureau and 12 prominent social science research organizations:

  • CUNY
  • Columbia University
  • Cornell University
  • The Federal Reserve Bank of New York
  • The National Bureau of Economic Research
  • New York University
  • Princeton University
  • The Russell Sage Foundation
  • SUNY Albany
  • Syracuse University
  • Yale University

NYCRDC also received generous support from the National Science Foundation (grant SEC-0322902 and grant ITR-0427889) the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Research Proposal Approval Requirements

All research proposals must undergo an extensive review process before they can be carried out at a research data center.

Researchers must be able to demonstrate that projects using Census data:

  • Benefit the U.S. Census Bureau
  • Meet standards of scientific merit and feasibility
  • Satisfy strict confidentiality requirements

Proposals requesting NCHS and AHRQ data must meet the criteria of each agency.
