CISER is all about Data; finding, depositing, understanding, and working with data in a range of secure environments – whatever level of security is required by the data provider – and more.

CISER Data Archive

CISER has an extensive data collection with emphasis on labor, political, and social behavior, demography, economics, and health. The collection includes federal and state census files, administrative records, public opinion surveys, economic and social data from national and international organizations, along with studies compiled by individual researchers.
