Federal Statistical Research Data Centers are partnerships between federal statistical agencies and leading research institutions. They are secure facilities providing authorized access to restricted-use microdata for statistical purposes only. The RDCs provide a secure Census Bureau environment where researchers may have limited access to non-public demographic, economic, and public health microdata, with appropriate safeguards to protect data confidentiality.
