Training Programs

Our training programs provide cutting-edge analytics skills and apply them to real world micro-data to help solve real world problems.


The Administrative Data Research Facility (ADRF) provides a secure platform to host confidential micro-data. The ADRF is designed to promote collaboration, facilitate documentation, and provide information about use to data stewards.

Rich Context

We are working with the research community to build a set of tools that enable collaborative knowledge creation and discovery with confidential microdata. Our goal is to transform the empirical foundation of social and health sciences research.
