The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is a data repository hosted by the University of Michigan that includes over fifty years of clean, well-documented, curated social science and interdisciplinary data.

The data is deposited by researchers and the government for use in secondary data analysis and in teaching.

Temple University is an ICPSR member institution and has access to all deposited data. Temple researchers may also apply to deposit their own data for archiving with ICPSR.
