These highly secure centers provide researchers access to restricted federal data, allowing them to investigate issues in greater detail. The Central Plains Research Data Center, a partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau's Center for Economic Studies, will join a network of 18 such centers in the United States that are jointly funded by the Census Bureau and the National Science Foundation. UNL won a $300,000 NSF grant to launch the center. The University of Nebraska Medical Center, Iowa State University, the University of Iowa and the University of South Dakota are partnering with UNL to establish the center. Slated to open in fall 2015, the facility will be housed in UNL's Whittier Research Center. A U.S. Census Bureau employee will manage the center. Only researchers who receive government clearance and who agree to protect the sensitive data will have access.
