The Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) is a partnership between the U.S. Census Bureau, Stanford University, UCLA, and UC Berkeley. The FSRDC at IRiSS is one of 20 laboratories nationwide which provide researchers with local access to non-public microdata in a secure facility.  Projects approved by the Census Bureau can use microdata from the Census Bureau's economic and demographic surveys and censuses, as well as restricted use data from NCHS and AHRQ.

A listing of the primary datasets in the RDC including data from Census, NCHS, and now BLS are listed here:
