The State Data Center (SDC) Program is one of the Census Bureau's longest and most successful partnerships. It is a cooperative program between the states and the Census Bureau that was created in 1978 to make data available locally to the public through a network of state agencies, universities, libraries, and regional and local governments.
The New York State Data Center operates through a network of Affiliate Data Centers throughout the State. These agencies maintain Census and related economic and demographic data and provide local information services to local government, business and the public.
