  • University of Michigan's NACDA archives
    WHO will work with the University of Michigan's Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging (NACDA) to deposit SAGE data in its archives. The ICPSR provides technical and practical support for researchers and students wanting to use and analyze the data. We hope this will be one more avenue for researchers and analysts to access SAGE data.
