Data-PASS has acquired and preserved social science data at risk of being lost to the research community, including opinion polls, voting records, large-scale surveys and other social science studies. While this information provides the full story of the social and cultural experience of America, a huge quantity of this data is missing or at-risk.  Significant data collections that had not been deposited in a permanent archive have been identified and acquired by the partner institutions. Through NDIIPP funding, these data have been preserved and made available through a shared catalog.
