The Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) network is comprised by Census-managed secure computing labs within top educational and research institutions across the country where qualified researchers conduct approved statistical analysis on non-public data. These data are collected by various government agencies (Census Bureau, NCHS, BEA, BLS, SSA, etc.) and made available to local researchers through agreements with federal statistical agencies.

This workshop will give a general introduction to- the data available in the University of Washington’s Northwest FSRDC, some examples of work done with different kinds of data, and the process of requesting access to this data.

Prerequisites
