Research Opportunities Using Non-Public Data Available in Duke's Federal Statistical Research Data Center
Duke University operates a secure computer lab that provides approved research projects access to use the non-public (raw) data collected by the Federal government, including Census, Bureau of Labor Statistics, National Center for Health Statistics, and many other agencies. User provided data can be linked to these confidential sources and, for the first time in the history of the US statistical system, data from multiple agencies can be merged for analysis.
Dr. Boyd's seminar will describe these resources and the process to gain access for research.
