WE MOVED TO OUR NEW DIGS AT GROSS HALL, WEST CAMPUS!
Triangle Census Research Data Center (TCRDC) is now located on the 2nd floor of Gross Hall.
To many researchers at Duke University, the Census Bureau is a rich source of demographic and economic data, data that make it possible to answer all sorts of important and interesting questions.
TCRDC is a partnership between the U.S. Census Bureau and Duke University in cooperation with the The University of North Carolina System and Research Triangle Institute (RTI). Under this partnership, the Census Bureau allows qualified researchers to perform statistical analysis on selected internal non-public microdata from the Census Bureau's economic and demographic censuses and surveys via two secure computer laboratories located at either Duke and RTI. Statistical analysis of non public data from other government agencies may be conducted via the TCRDC as well; including data from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
The TCRDC is one of 12 sites in a network of Research Data Centers located around the U.S. The TCRDC is the oldest such facility in the Southeast.
Faculty, students, and staff from Duke, RTI, or any of the 16 universities in the UNC System may use the TCRDC free of cost for their Census approved research projects, making the TCRDC is a unique opportunity for qualified researchers in the region. Other researchers may use the TCRDC on a fee basis.
