Data Science Center (Formerly Social Sciences Data Archives)

Majority of the public use datasets needed for demographic research can be found in the Data Science Center (Formerly Social Sciences Data Archives)  or through its broad professional networks such as ICPSR, although the Data Science Center itself does not purchase datasets. The DSC provides assistance in locating data and documentation as needed by researcher, students, and faculty. Assistance is also provided in using code books and other data documentation. Technical consulting is provided for file transfer and access, and other computing questions.

The DSC collaborates with the CCPR Research Core to provide customized data archive and access services for demographic researchers affiliated with the CCPR. To know more about the DSC at UCLA, refer to the following Web resource:
