Welcome to the Triangle Research Data Center (TRDC). We have two branches available for researchers: one branch is located at the Carolina Population Center (CPC) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the second branch is located in the Social Science Research Institute at Duke University.
The TRDC is part of the Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) program. Under this program, the Census Bureau and other agencies allows researchers with approved proposals to perform statistical analysis on non-public microdata from a variety of statistical agencies to address important research questions.
These datasets are among the largest and most important sources of statistical information in the US and many of them can only be accessed through a FSRDC.
