Why should my institution join ICPSR?

ICPSR institutional memberships enable everyone at a member institution -- researchers, students, faculty, and staff - to access ICPSR's unique resources and services. ICPSR members receive:

  • On-demand access to over 7,000 original research studies, many with ready-to-go files for SPSS, SAS, and Stata, and with online analysis capabilities. Studies are fully processed and documented and are supplemented by ICPSR's popular bibliography that identifies journal articles and other publications, often in full text, based on the data.

  • Access to teaching tools supporting quantitative literacy in undergraduate education. ICPSR's Resources for Instructors assists teaching faculty in bringing data and analysis into the classroom.

  • Help in using data, both self-help via its Help Documentation and live help via email or telephone.
