Access to social science data files, including coverage of such topics as population, economics, education, health, social and political behavior/attitudes, terrorism, history, crime, aging, and substance abuse. Direct downloading is available. Registration with a MyData account is required for most data file downloads. The data files require statistical software (e.g., SAS, SPSS, Stata) to manipulate the data; see Information Technology's Statistical Software Downloads (UKITS) for information on acquiring software and usage assistance. For assistance with locating data files in ICPSR, contact the Young Library Reference Desk. For more information on ICPSR, see the ICPSR Research Guide or visit the ICPSR site.
Please Note: Off-campus access via the proxy server is inconsistent. You may find that data searches and displays do not work. If that happens, please use this non-proxied link for on-campus access. If you encounter this problem off-campus, you can try the non-proxied link, but you may have to come on-campus to access certain data sets.
Also, registration with a MyData account is required to download most data files. Registering will increase your access options.
