How do I access ICPSR data if I am not at a member institution?

Some ICPSR data are freely available for anyone to download from our website. These data are part of the topical archives at ICPSR and generally include data pertaining to criminal justice, health and aging, substance abuse and mental health, child care, and health and medical care. Other data, referred to as members-only data, can only be downloaded by member institutions.

Individuals at nonmember institutions interested in those data should send an email to ICPSR User Support at or call (734) 647-2200 for access information. ICPSR typically charges an access fee of approximately $1,125 per dataset.
