Finding and Using Data from ICPSR

Temple is a member of the Inter-University Consortium of Political and Social Research (ICPSR), an international research and educational consortium that maintains the ICSPR archive of social and behavioral research data.

Create a MyData account

Access to ICPSR is limited to current Temple students, faculty and staff.

To access datasets from off campus, Temple affiliates will need to create an ICPSR MyData account that ICPSR recognizes as Temple-affiliated. 

Create an ICPSR MyData account using the link provided by the library, or from a campus computer, to register the account as Temple-affiliated.

From that point on, go to ICPSR through a library link or directly, and log in with the MyData account to be able to access members-only content from off-campus.

To keep your account valid for Temple's member access, you will need to log in via a campus computer every 6 months.
