Below is a special message from ICPSR Director Margaret Levenstein:

"Congratulations and happy birthday to ICPSR on its 60th! A lot has happened in the intervening years during which ICPSR has made hundreds of thousands of datasets available to millions of people around the world, and educated many thousands of people in working with data more effectively and more transparently. While technology has changed from punch cards to APIs, with many stages in between, ICPSR has stayed true to its mission of expanding access to high-quality data in order to facilitate innovative social science research. We are transforming the Research Data Ecosystem to reach more people and enable more and better understanding of the world in which we live. The future of data is bright, and I am proud of the work that all of you do, and have done, to continue to shine that light. Here's to a successful 60 years past, and a successful 60 years to come."
