The MRDC is supported by Provost of the University of Michigan, the Institute for Social Research, the National Science Foundation, and fees charged to researchers. Access to the MRDC is provided at no charge to University of Michigan junior faculty and graduate students.  Other researchers should inquire to the MRDC for fee information.

Partner Institutions

Component ID: #ti1446528955

The operation of each Federal Statistical Research Data Center (RDC) is supported by both the Census Bureau and RDC partner institutions. Some RDC partner institutions form consortiums to share the operational costs of the RDC and may waive user fees for their affiliates. Several RDCs have built branch locations to reduce the cost of researchers commuting to the core location while still maintaining the identical stringent information technology and physical security requirements.
