Data Center Affiliates

In 1978 the U.S. Census Bureau, recognizing the public’s need for efficient and local access to census data, created the State Data Center (SDC) Program. The SDC Program established a lead organization and a network of affiliates within each state comprising of state agencies, universities, libraries, and regional and local governments. Since its inception, SDC Affiliates have assisted millions of data users with access to census data and products.

SDC Affiliates in Connecticut have been asked to help the Census Bureau distribute demographic, economic and social information:

– Statistics produced by Census and associated government agencies, such as Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).
– Availability of data at no or a minimal charge, on a cost basis if necessary.
– Training and technical assistance for the public in the use of these data sources.
– Feedback loop to report to the Census Bureau on usage and operational issues
