The Nevada State Data Center (SDC) program was established in 1982 as a service of the Nevada State Library, Archives & Public Records. The Nevada State Data Center provides training and technical assistance in accessing and using Census data for the planning, decision-making, administration and research needs of Nevada's state and local governments, businesses, researchers and others.
The Nevada State Data Center serves as the coordinating agency for 21 State Affiliates. This network consists of state and local government agencies who produce primary data on the Nevada economy, regional and local organizations, libraries and universities. Each State Affiliate uses and provides Census-related products and services to Nevadans.
The State Data Center Program is a cooperative effort of the US Census Bureau and the states to improve public access to census statistics and information. All states participate. The objectives of the program are twofold: to provide access to and promote the use of Census Bureau statistical resources, and to provide training and technical assistance in accessing and using the data.
