The Minnesota Research Data Center (MnRDC) is located at the University of Minnesota and is supported by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Institute for Social Research and Data Innovation. MnRDC builds on the existing collaborations between federal statistical agencies, including the Census Bureau and NCHS, to create IPUMS data products. MnRDC hosts data improvement projects as well as innovative demographic, health, economic and business research.
Catherine Fitch is Associate Director of the Minnesota Population Center at the University of Minnesota and the Director of the MnRDC.
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.
