Indiana State Library

Indiana State Library

State Data Center

In 1978, the State Data Center (SDC) Program began as a cooperative agreement between the states and the U.S. Census Bureau. State Data Centers assist the Census Bureau by disseminating Census and other federal statistics.

The Indiana State Data Center makes the Census as well as other federal and state statistics on such topics as demographics and economics available through a statewide network of affiliates located in state agencies, universities, libraries, local planning agencies, small business development centers, and non-profit organizations. We provide data and training services to all sectors of the community including government agencies, businesses, academia, non-profit organizations, and private citizens.  Our products and services are used in marketing, economic development, community planning and analysis, grant writing, business start-ups, and much more.

Management and leadership for the Indiana State Data Center Program is provided by one Lead Agency,  the State Data Center at the Indiana State Library, and three Coordinating Agencies: the Indiana Business Research Center at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business (Indianapolis and Bloomington), the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (IDWD), and the Indiana Geographic Information Council (IGIC).
