NACJD is changing the management of requests for restricted data. Since restricted data carry some risk of re-identification of individuals, current procedures require researchers to obtain access to such data by submitting an acceptable Restricted Data Use Agreement and accompanying materials. This submission requirement will not change. What will change is the method of submission, as ICPSR introduces one that is Web-based, rather than paper-based. For a few months both methods will be in use. Beginning July 19, 2011, requests for data from the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) will be managed in the Web-based ICPSR Restricted Data Contract Portal. Requests for all other NACJD restricted data will continue to use the paper-based method until these data are added to the Web-based system.
When requests for restricted data are to be submitted through the ICPSR Restricted Data Contract Portal, researchers will see the following message and link on the study home page under Access Notes:
One or more files in this study are restricted. You can apply for access to the data through the ICPSR Restricted Data Contract Portal.
Applicants must log in to ICPSR to submit their application through the portal; and may need to create a MyData account to do this. (Use the "Login/Create Account" link located in the upper right hand corner of most pages on our Web sites.)
For restricted data available through the paper-based method, researchers will see the following message and link on the study home page under Access Notes:
One or more files in this study are restricted; consult the detailed metadata page to learn more.
Researchers should also consult the NACJD Restricted Data page for instructions and access to the paper forms.
