The Center acquires, preserves and makes accessible thousands of individual-level datasets based on surveys conducted since the 1930s. The collection provides opportunities for researchers to conduct detailed secondary analysis to discover new insights years after the original survey was released.

Over 12,000 US studies and almost as many surveys from other countries are currently stored and maintained by the Center.
