Website The Coleridge Initiative, Inc.

The Coleridge Initiative ( is a not-for-profit start-up, originally established at New York University, which became fully autonomous and independent in early 2020. Our mission is to transform the empirical foundation of social science, statistical and public agencies in the United States and the understanding of how our society works.

The Coleridge Initiative achieves its goal by working with government agencies to break down data barriers around confidential data, through building new technologies housed in a secure computational research platform, the FedRAMP authorized Administrative Data Research Facility (ADRF), to promote access and discovery of sensitive and confidential microdata. Those technologies are combined with training programs and consulting services to build governmental agency capacity to serve society. We have already created dozens of pilot projects and worked with over 250 agencies—federal, state, and local—and trained over 600 agency staff.
