California Census Research Data Center
In partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau, The California Census Research Data Center (CCRDC)provides researchers with access to non-public Census data, facilitating innovative research and safeguarding confidentiality.
In the 1990's, UC DATA led the way in partnering with state and local governments.
As part of the evaulation of the state's welfare reform - The California Works Pays Demonstration Project- UC DATA worked closely with the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and several county welfare agencies collecting administrative data.
The collaborative relationships developed were key to resolving many of the issues in using these confidential data.
