About the Center

The Kentucky Research Data Center (KRDC) is a collaboration between the University of Kentucky and the U.S. Census Bureau established by a grant from the National Science Foundation in 2016. KRDC is part of the nationwide system of Federal Statistical Research Data Centers whose mission is to expand the data infrastructure available to qualified scholars and students with approved projects by providing access to restricted individual- and firm-level data from participating federal statistical agencies. KRDC is maintained by a regional consortium of leading research institutions, including the University of Kentucky, Indiana University, The Ohio State University, the University of Cincinnati, and the University of Louisville. The lab is located on the University of Kentucky campus in the Gatton College of Business and Economics Building.




On Friday, August 31, 2018, KRDC will host a seminar by Charles (Chuck) Courtemanche  entitled "Walmart, Obama Care, and Working at an RDC" from 3:00-4:30pm in Gatton Business and Economics Building room 157. Chuck will discuss how he has leveraged the RDC in his research. (Zoom https://uky.zoom.us/j/267387186 Or +1 646 876 9923 (US Toll) Meeting ID: 267 387 186)
