Created in April 1979, the Census State Data Center (CSDC) is the official representative of the U. S. Bureau of the Census in Arkansas. The national State Data Center Program is a partnership between the Census Bureau and the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the island areas. The Arkansas lead agency is located in the Arkansas Economic Development Institute at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and it serves as a liaison between the Washington headquarters, the Chicago Regional Office, and state and local governmental officials.
The CSDC assists the Census Bureau in promoting the decennial census but its main responsibility is one of dissemination. The State Data Center disseminates the Arkansas census information to data users throughout the state through a variety of media. In addition to data dissemination, the CSDC provides technical assistance in the understanding and application of the census information.
If you are unable to find the information you need, please contact the Arkansas Census State Data Center for immediate assistance during regular business hours: M-F 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST.
