Social science data available via ICPSR!


What is the average age at which men versus women begin smoking?

Does age at marriage differ between NC and other parts of the country?

How does age, gender, education, race, or ethnicity affect political attitudes?

All these questions can be answered by studies in ICPSR, the world's largest collection of digital social science data. ICPSR data cover topics from sociology, political science, economics, demography, education, child care, health care, crime, minority populations, aging, terrorism, substance abuse, mental health, public policy, and international relations.

All UNC Asheville staff, students, and faculty have access to the extensive ICPSR data holdings via any campus computer. First-time users will be asked to create an ICPSR MyData account; thereafter, you will need your email address and password to download data.
