Minnesota Research Data Center

The Minnesota Research Data Center (MnRDC) provides the opportunity for researchers access to non-public data from the U.S. Census Bureau and other government agencies in a secure setting on the campus of the University of Minnesota.

Through the MnRDC's controlled environment, researchers with approved projects are able to use decennial census and demographic surveys, economic census and surveys, and health data from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) in addition to other federal agencies.
