Secure Research Environment

Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (RDCs) are Census Bureau facilities, housed in partner institutions, that meet all physical and information security requirements for access to restricted–use micro data of the agencies whose data are accessed there. 

RDC researchers have access to computing capacity to handle large datasets and complex calculations. Standard statistical, econometric, and programming software, including Stata, SAS®, R, MATLAB and Anaconda python are available in a Linux environment. RDC researchers can collaborate with other RDC researchers across the U.S. through the secure RDC computing environment.
