Cornell Program on Applied Demographics
The Program on Applied Demographics (PAD) brings skills in demographics, economics, statistics, data gathering and data analysis together to provide a variety of organizations with data, information and advice. PAD works closely with the New York State Department of Economic Development, the U.S. Census Bureau and other organizations to assist them in their activities. Examples of PAD's activities can be found here.
Being part of Cornell University gives PAD easy access to a world of further expertise. It also provides an environment that can handle different kinds of grants and other types of funding and cooperation.
Cornell University is home to one of only 10 U.S. Census Research Data Centers (RDC) nationwide. The RDC, housed at CISER, provides secure access to confidential microdata from a number of administrative and survey data sources. These are invaluable resources to help understand various demographic processes.
