Census Longitudinal Infrastructure Pilot Projects

The Census Longitudinal Infrastructure Project (CLIP) started with pilot projects to demonstrate uses of the Data Linkage Infrastructure. All pilot projects have at least one Census Bureau participant and at least one participant from an academic institution. The projects are taking place within the Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (FSRDCs). Following the success of many of these pilot projects, researchers can now request access to the linked data for research through the Census Bureau's FSRDC proposal process.
