Cornell Federal Statistical Research Data Center (Cornell FSRDC)

Syracuse University is member of the New York Research Data Center (NYRDC) Consortium. The NYRDC is part of the Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) Network with core RDCs located at Baruch College and Cornell University, and a branch RDC at Yale University.

SU researchers have access to the Cornell FSRDC, which provides researchers the opportunity to access selected Census, NCHS, and AHRQ confidential microdata in a physically secure facility located at 391 Pine Tree Rd at the Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER).

The FSRDC Presentation Series will begin on March 31. Presenters will be invited from the FSRDC researcher community to discuss their project findings as well as overall FSRDC experience. The presentation series will be a regularly scheduled network-wide event, open to existing and potential FSRDC researchers, appropriate staff among agency partners, along with interested Census Bureau staff. Researchers who are considering using the FSRDC located at Cornell University are encouraged to attend.

On October 23rd, 2019, CPR hosted the new Cornell Research Data Center Administrator, Nichole Szembrot, and several leaders from the Cornell branch for a general information session. The event provided guests with a general overview of the federal statistical data system, the data available, and how the process works. Slides from the Fall 2019 information session can be accessed here: “Research Using Restricted Data.” 

Access to the Cornell RDC is made possible through the generous support of the Maxwell School, Syracuse University Libraries, and the Office of the Vice President for Research.
