Research @ Census

Restricted-Use Microdata

Some vital questions cannot be answered with publicly available data. The Census Bureau partners with various universities, research institutions, and agencies to form a nationwide network of secure Census Bureau Research Data Centers.

At these secure centers, qualified researchers with approved projects can perform statistical analysis on selected internal microdata from the Census Bureau and other statistical agencies.

Explore the links below to learn more about the microdata available at secure Census Bureau Research Data Centers.
