What We Do

EBRC responds to requests for information from business leaders, state and local government agencies, chambers of commerce, public and private researchers, industrial organizations, news media, students, and private citizens.

EBRC is also a coordinating agency for the State Data Center (SDC) program. This means EBRC Library staff are available to help you access data from the Census Bureau, as well as the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and other federal and state agencies. The SDC program was established to improve the accessibility of statistical information and products from the Census Bureau to the citizens of our state. The program consists of a network of state agencies, universities, libraries, regional and local governments which have expertise working with census information and have formed a cooperative network to more effectively respond to data requests on population and demography. EBRC has been a member of the Arizona State Data Center program since its inception in 1978.
