The State Data Center (SDC) is an office within the State Library of Kansas that provides a wealth of demographic and economic information to the public – in nearly all cases, free of charge. It was created in 1978 as a cooperative program between the states and the Census Bureau to make data available locally through a network of state agencies, universities, libraries, and regional and local governments. This information is invaluable to those involved with planning, providing, and supporting public services. Several reports and data can be requested from the Data Center. Library statistical reports can be accessed at the State Library of Kansas’ Library Statistics page.
