To Request Access to Data for Research

Obtaining basic access to Understanding America Study Data is a two-stage process:

Accounts are provided to those who have a legitimate research purpose. Your account, once granted, will provide access to UAS data associated with surveys that are not currently under embargo. You may not share this data with colleagues, co-authors, or collaborators unless they too have created a UAS data access account.

We strive to respond to your request within 3 business days. Incomplete DUAs, or failure of students and non-affiliated researchers to provide the additional required information as listed above and in the DUA will engender delays.
