Gear UP for Social Science Data Talk by Emi Lesure
The Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) program allows qualified researchers to securely use restricted-access microdata from the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and other federal agencies. There are only about 30 FSRDCs located across the U.S. and Stanford has one of them, providing access to rich datasets researchers would otherwise need to travel to Washington, D.C., to use. The Stanford FSRDC will be moving to a new, central location in 2020, so now is a great time to learn about this resource. Emi Lesure will discuss the available datasets and the access process. She will also be available for consultations before and after the presentation in the Data Expo room.
Emi Lesure, Ph.D., is the Stanford FSRDC administrator and the primary contact for all inquiries about the RDC including proposal development, dataset availability, guidelines, and access.
