The Source for Crime and Justice Data

The dataset I wish to analyze is restricted. What do I have to do to get the data?

In general, information on how to obtain the data can be found on the study home page. At the top of the page under "Access Notes" there will be a note that will direct you to our online data access request system, or will point you to a PDF file that explains the steps you need to take to obtain the data.

Before you begin filling out the paperwork, you should know the following:

ICPSR does not discourage the use of restricted data. In fact, we've put a lot of effort into building systems that make this data available to our users. We are, however, very serious about protecting respondent confidentiality and ensuring that sensitive data is used appropriately.

You can find a video tutorial addressing this topic on the ICPSR YouTube channel.
