Cornell University has received a $3M NSF
-
Census
Research
Network (NCRN) award
to improve the
documentation and discoverability of both public
and restricted data from the federal statistical
system. The current internal name for this project is
the
Comprehensive
Extensible Data Documentation
and Access Repository (CED²AR
)
. The diagram to
the right provides a high level architectural
overview of the system to be implemented.

The CED²AR will be based upon leading metadata standards such as the Data Documentation
Initiative (DDI) and Statistical Data and Metadata
eXchange

(SDMX) and be flexibly designed to
ingest documentation from a variety of source files. It will permit synchronization between the
public and confidential instances of the repository. The scholarly community will be able to use
the CED²AR as it would a conventional metadata repository, deprived only of the values of certain
confidential information, but not their metadata. The authorized user, working on the secure
Census Bureau network, could use the CED²AR with full information in authorized domains.


Ongoing technical challenge of efficiently translating and
importing disparate data sets into metadata repository
