The RDC allows researchers to access confidential data from a growing number of federal statistical agencies, including the Census Bureau, the National Center for Health Statistics, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the Internal Revenue Service. This includes more fine-grained regional information and variables with respect to public data and administrative sources only available at the RDC. The presentation will give an overview of available data on health, social, economic outcomes of individuals, the economic behavior of firms, workplace safety, and trade statistics, among others (see below for a high-level preview). We will also discuss the process of applying for data from different agencies. A Question and Answer session will take place at the end.In part due to the Commission on Evidence-Based Policy and in part due to increasing efforts to merge new data sources, the available information at the RDC is growing. It will likely grow further, among others because of potential new privacy restrictions on future Census data.Take this opportunity to learn about data available and the process to accessing it. If you cannot make it at the date and time, a video of the presentations and the slides will be posted on the RDC’s website.
