The Cowles Foundation, in partnership with Yale Library Services, is proud to sponsor an information session about the Yale Federal Statistical Research Data Center(YFSRDC) on Tuesday, April 16 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall, located at 120 High Street.  

Shirley H. Liu, Economist and Administrator from the New York branch of the Federal Statistical Research Data Center, will give an overview of the YFSRDC, the Census Bureau partners, the process to obtain permission to use the data, and what types of data are available. She will also discuss available nonpublic data and datasets, as well as, the proposal and access criteria in using the Census Bureau data. The presentation is geared toward faculty and graduate students, with a slant toward those in the health-related fields, but is open to the wider Yale community.
