Back by popular demand: Adopt a Dataset!

 

Adopt a Dataset at ICPSR

ICPSR's Adopt a Dataset program is free and open to the public. Seasoned researchers, nonprofit staff members, undergraduate students, and anyone else who wants to learn about data is encouraged to adopt a dataset from the list below. Please note that the Adopt a Dataset program will open in February 2022.

 

What does it mean to adopt a dataset?

Adopting a dataset is kind of like adopting a dog, except less messy. Get started by reviewing the list of datasets below to find something of interest to you. Fill out the Dataset Adoption Form (opening February 2022), and then go back to the study page to download, analyze online, or just review the summary information. Your role is to bring your dataset to life by learning about the information it contains and to share the information you're learning through email, social media, virtual meetings, and more.  Use the images and templates below to get started.

 

When you fill out your Dataset Adoption Form, you can expect to feel warm fuzzies and a deep sense of pride. You'll receive a digital Certificate of Adoption and, if you choose, your name will appear on the Adopt a Dataset Wall of Honor, along with others who have adopted their own datasets.

 

How do I adopt a dataset?

  1. Review the list of datasets available for adoption (or choose from any dataset in the ICPSR holdings
  2. Fill out the Dataset Adoption Form (available February 2022)
  3. You'll be directed to your adoption certificate and other resources
