ICPSR Access Help

  • If you are a new user, please create an account with ICPSR. 
  • ICPSR provides three kinds of datasets:
    1. Public-use datasets. They can be downloaded from anywhere.
    2. Member-only datasets: ICPSR needs users to login once every six months or so from authorized IP address. Once user's MyData account has been validated, access isn't entirely based on IP address anymore. All the computers on campus are within the authorized IP range with ICPSR. If you are a member of one of our support areas within SSD and NORC and have any problem or question, please contact us at Sscs-data-archive@listhost.uchicago.edu.
    3. Restricted datasets: only documentation files can be downloadable. Data files will be sent to users on CD-ROM by ICPSR. Moreover, restricted data investigator needs to sign a Restricted Data Use Agreement. All the Agreements should be endorsed by the University. The appropriate administrators to contact for this are:
