California - UCLA


Located on the UCLA Campus in the Public Affairs Building, the UCLA RDC draws researchers from UCLA and throughout southern California. 

The UCLA RDC is part of The California Research Data Center (CRDC), a joint project of the U.S. Census Bureau, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, Stanford University and the University of Southern California. The CRDC seeks to provide qualified researchers across California with the opportunity to perform statistical analysis on non-public data from several federal statistical agencies. The secure RDC environment supports qualified researchers while protecting respondent confidentiality with state-of-the-art tools and processes.

Partner Institutions

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.
