The Roper Center for Public Opinion Research at Cornell University offers the world’s largest archive of public opinion survey data dating back to 1935. The Roper Center has identified many datasets in its archive that are stored in outdated file formats. Converting these datasets to usable formats is labor intensive and can be costly. The Center is interested in working collaboratively with researchers to secure grants and sources of funding and that would make the following data available for the first time.

The Roper Center is partners with the Cornell Center for Social Sciences grant program with an in-kind contribution for these types of conversions. For more information, see the CCSS-Roper Center Grants.
