The Social Science Data Archives maintains a collection of machine-readable survey, census, and administrative data files and provides access to publicly available data. A portion of the collection is focused on Los Angeles from a demographic, economic, social, or political viewpoint. Los Angeles-specific data may also be extracted from files in the collection that contain data from studies covering demographic areas larger than Los Angeles.
Data can be archived or by SSDA itself or by ICPSR or by UCLA Social Science Data Archive Dataverse (http://thedata.harvard.edu/dvn/dv/ssda_ucla) or by UCLA Library or by California Digital Library. Data are primarily acquired through UCLA’s membership in the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).
