Creating a MyData Account is Easier Than You Might Think

How to Create a MyData Account

So you're ready to download data, and now you need to register for a MyData Account...

NACDA is part of ICPSR, so if you already have an ICPSR MyData account, you just need to log in. 

If you don't already have an account, you will need to create one

- and it can be used to access data across all ICPSR sites. 

Look for the "Log In/Create Account" hyperlink, usually located in the upper right hand corner of our site pages.

Once you click that, you should land on the login page:

MyData account login page - requires username and password credentials

Select "Create Account" and fill out the form, then select "Submit"

Form page for MyData account - requires first and last name and email among other fields

Once you submit your form, you will be asked to verify your account via the email you provided. 

A verification link will be sent to your email from icpsr-websupport, once you select the link

you will be led to a page where you will need to select the "verify" button. 

After that's done - log in to our site and you should be all set to download data!
