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.

Syracuse University 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 Center for the Social Sciences.

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.
