1,800 agencies – Providing guidance and access to Census data.
The State Data Center Network includes statistical agencies, research offices, and data-providing organizations from 56 states and U.S. territories. We partner with Census Bureau’s headquarters and its Regional Offices to provide expert analysis, training, technical assistance, and extension of Census products in our respective states. A memorandum of agreement between the Bureau and the states and territories defines the partnership.
Since 1978, SDC member agencies have provided millions of data users with access to Census Bureau data and other statistical resources. Each state has affiliates that serve constituents in need of economic and demographic data. This significant support is provided by the network’s dedicated local professionals in their roles as economic developers, librarians, demographers, and research professionals.
This website serves our SDC member agencies by providing resources, information, and links that aid our partnership. This website is supported by sponsorship funds and managed by volunteers from SDC member agencies. This website is maintained by the SDC Steering Committee, and receives no federal funding.
