Computing and Software
Researchers using restricted access-data must be physically within the RDC facility and conduct their analyses using the specific computers, secure network connections, and available software within the RDC.
What’s in the RDC workspace
We provide each project with workspaces, a place to secure research materials, and thin-client workstations to remotely access Linux servers located at the Census Bureau.
The below links review some issues, and provide links to more information on the RDC computing environment and software available.
Note: The information in the links below is from the Texas Census Research Data Center.
