Massachusetts State Data Center

The State Data Center (SDC)’s mission is to support access to all U.S. Census Bureau data and information for Massachusetts residents and organizations. The SDC is the official local source of demographic, economic and social statistics produced by the U.S. Census Bureau.


What we do

The UMass Donahue Institute is home to the Massachusetts State Data Center. Staffed by members of the Economic and Public Policy Research group, the SDC helps Massachusetts access U.S. Census Bureau data and information. For each state, SDCs are official premier sources of demographic, economic, and social statistics produced by the U. S. Census Bureau. Those include the American Community Survey, Decennial Census, Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics, and County Business Patterns data sets. As a part of the Economic & Public Policy Research group, the Massachusetts SDC also produces a comprehensive economic overview of Massachusetts called the Economic Due Diligence Report for the Massachusetts State Treasurer’s Department of Debt Management.
