In an effort to promote rescued federal data and prevent duplicated efforts, IRE and NICAR are cataloging rescued data in a public directory. 

Below is a list of datasets saved by concerned IRE members as well as data held by other data rescue organizations including DataRefuge. To access the rescued data, please follow the link provided in the table. 

If you saved a dataset and are willing to share, please take our survey

There are some datasets of concern that are still publicly available. In the cases of data saved by an IRE member, we provided the link to the original source. If the dataset disappears, we will work with the member holding the data to ensure it’s publicly available.
