Description: Federal Statistical Research Data Centers Day: Opportunities for Researchers to Use Restricted Access Data
We are sponsoring an event at the end of March targeted toward researchers in the social sciences. Faculty, postdocs, and graduate students are all welcome to attend.

Restricted data are non-public data collected by U.S. Census Bureau and other government agencies that contain information that could compromise the confidentiality of survey respondents or institutions, or is sensitive by nature. Projects using restricted access data regularly appear in top-tier academic publications and have spurred subsequent research using administrative datasets from other countries. This day-long workshop will feature several speakers from ISU and surrounding institutions about how these data can be used by faculty in the social sciences. Registration is limited to eighty, so register early!
