Information for researchers

A central goal of the CJARS project is to develop a uniform, harmonized, accessible data infrastructure resource that can be leveraged by the entire research community. Increasingly fragmented use of administrative records in research introduces limits on reproducible science.

As the project matures, we hope that research users will become collaborative members of the CJARS project by helping improve data documentation, enhance data quality and harmonization, and discover new research uses.

CJARS is accessible to the research community through the Census Bureau’s Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) network.
