Social Science Data Library (SSDL)

Established in 1975, the Social Science Data Library (SSDL)
serves as Temple University's centralized, interdisciplinary
repository for computerized social science data and expertise
in the analysis of such data. Currently, its holdings incorporate
files on virtually subject of interest to social scientists. The files
range from nineteenth century census data to health examination
surveys of national samples to arrest records from
the Paris Insurrection of 1848 to international economic statistics.
SSDL also is a member of the

Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research,

which gives students and faculty access to thousands of other
data files. The primary mission of SSDL is to support research
and instruction in the social sciences by making its holdings
freely available to faculty and students, by creating special files
tailored to the needs of specific courses or research projects,
by offering classroom instruction and individual consultative
assistance in the use of its holdings, by acquiring and creating
new data sets in which there is likely to be instructional and
research interest, and by introducing to Temple users new
technologies which facilitate data analysis.
