Minnesota Population Center Receives NIH Grant

Posted on November 22, 2013

The Minnesota Population Center (MPC) was recently awarded $3.2 million to fund a project that will expand the Center’s Integrated Public Use Microdata Series. The project will add data on more than 600 million US individuals, greatly expanding the scope of the database. The OVPR Research blog has an article about the project and the MPC.

MSI provides high-performance computing resources that the MPC and its Executive Director, Regents Professor Steven Ruggles, use for “big data” and informatics analyses.
