Emory partners to bring census center

Emory is part of a consortium of supporting partners that is bringing a U.S. Census Bureau Research Data Center to Atlanta.

One of only 10 in the nation, the Atlanta Census Research Data Center (ACRDC) will offer approved researchers access to U.S. Census Bureau survey data.

The consortium of institutions will provide support for the ACRDC and coordinate ongoing operations. Its governance board will include representatives from each of the partners.

"Researchers approved by the U.S. Census Bureau will be able to access non-public government data for stronger, policy-relevant analysis not otherwise possible," said Barry Hirsch, the project's principal investigator and an Andrew Young School economics professor.

Georgia State University's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies led the effort to secure the center.
