Data resources are at the heart of good research.
This page lists data resources and services operating under or in collaboration with the D-Lab.
D-Lab Data Services support the social science data needs of UC Berkeley researchers. We provide access to a broad range of social science data and work with researchers to help them understand the content and use of these data. Part of our services are fulfilled through the D-Lab workshop and consulting programs. Additionally, D-Lab offers UC Berkeley faculty in-classroom training on public and restricted use census data resources upon request. We also partner with faculty to provide data analytics support on research projects.
D-Lab Data Partnerships
D-Lab is a partner of the U.S. Census Bureau's State Data Center Network (SDB/BIDC) which seeks to empower scholars to discover census data products and help them utilize these in their research.
D-Lab is the distributor for the California/Field and the IGS Polls. We provide access to these data to the entire UC Berkeley Campus.
D-Lab works with Research Data Management to coordinate the Secure Data Working Group. We welcome all campus members and the wider campus community to join our monthly discussions of best practices for working with restricted use data.
Additionally, D-Lab has many other valued campus partners with whom we work closely to facilitate scholarly access to data resources. The new Berkeley Research Data Portal (https://researchdataportal.berkeley.edu/) is a great umbrella portal to discover campus resources for data creation, access, use and sharing.
