New resources: ICPSR & ProQuest's Dissertations & Theses Global

The UCR Library recently acquired access to ICPSR data sets and ProQuest's Dissertations & Theses Global.


UCR is an institutional member of Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), which provides data access, curation, and methods of analysis for the social and behavioral science research community.

ICPSR is the world's largest archive of social science data, and is expanding into other disciplines as well. ICPSR provides web access to documentation and data files for use with statistical software, such as R, SAS, SPSS, and Stata.

UCR researchers in political science, economics, education, ethnic studies, gender studies, sociology, and more may find these data sets useful. Create an account on the ICPSR website to get started!
