The ISDC Data Catalog contains information on over 600 datasets covering an extensive range of key economic and social quantitative data, spanning several disciplines and themes. The bulk of the datasets described in this catalog are micro-level. Each dataset within the collection is described by bibliographic details, methodological information, abstract, geographical coverage and temporal coverage. Links to associated metadata include references to publications, subject keywords, extended metadata sources and links to related datasets, clustered in "Data Series".

The Social Science Variables Database, created with funding from the National Science Foundation as part of ICPSR's Infrastructure in the Social Sciences award (SES-9977984), is a database of over 4 million variables from ICPSR data. The SSVD enables the user to search for variables, compare variables across studies, and view the question text for select variables.

ICPSR Data Catalog

ICPSR provides all of its metadata records in DDI format. About 75 percent of the holdings also have DDI-compliant variable-level information.
