Information session on data available at the Census Research Data Center (RDC) at UCLA and how to access it:
Data availability of five types of confidential government data available in the RDC
 Business Data (Economic Census, Annual Survey of Manufactures, Longitudinal Foreign Trade Transactions Database, Commodity Flow Survey, Business Research and Development and Innovation Survey)
 Individual Data (CPS and SIPP merged to longitudinal earnings records, Decennial Census and American Community Survey with neighborhood IDs)
 Administrative Data (Longitudinal Business Database, Longitudinal Employer-Household Database, Census Numident, UMETRICS).
 Health and Injury Data (Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, National Health Interview Survey)
 Justice Data (National Crime Victimization Survey)
See https://www.census.gov/about/adrm/fsrdc/about/available_data.html. I will also talk about how to write a proposal for Census Data, and the typical duration to data access.
In addition, I will talk about administrative and survey German data available on firms, employment, and unemployment on campus. This data is quite rich, and relatively easily accessible:
 Worker-firm data (matched employer-employee panel covering over 35 years)
 Unemployment insurance and training data (daily unemployment spell data, data on labor market programs, data on welfare receipt)
 Survey data on workers with administrative firm and worker data (e.g., National Educational Panel Study, refugee survey, mental health at work survey)
 Survey data on firms linked with administrative
and worker data (e.g., structure of earnings survey, management and organizational practices survey)
