State Agency

State agency conducting research to study a state program or policy


I am a State Agency requester if:

I employed by a department of a state government. I'm using the data to conduct research studies and am not using the data for state agency operations.

Unique features of state research:

  • State researchers can request to "Opt-In" to data sharing.

- Opt-In allows a State to conduct multiple projects under one Data Use Agreement.
- Opt-In allows a State to disseminate the data to other state agencies conducting research.

  • States may request data for beneficiaries residing in the requesting state plus a 5% national sample for benchmarking.
