Five agencies directly provide data through Federal Statistical Research Data Centers.  Each agency has its own review and approval process.

In addition to the agencies directly providing data, many agencies who sponsor surveys also participate in the Research Data Center program by allowing surveys they co-sponsor to be made available.  In addition to data collected from respondents, statistical agencies are relying more heavily on administrative data from other federal agencies to conduct their programs.  These data are also being made more accessible within the Research Data Centers.  A detailed list of these agencies, with links to the data they make available, is provided below.
