Finding Data

Data Services helps PSC researchers find data. This can range from traditional survey data to state cigarette excise taxes to published tables such as the number of births by state in the 1930s. Information Services may also be able to assist with similar data queries, so be sure to include both units in your request.

We also help users understand data, for example determine why a published population estimate does not agree with what is on the Census Bureau website; help with an extraction interface; and clarify codebook discrepancies.

Here are some on-line sources for finding data:
