KFS Home > Data Files
Researchers wishing to access a more detailed data file and to engage with a community of researchers in analysis of the KFS should consider applying for access to the University of Chicago NORC Data Enclave. The NORC Data Enclave provides secure remote access to the KFS confidential microdata file, which contains more detail industry codes, geographical codes (zip code, metropolitan statistical area, and state), and many additional continuous variables (in addition to categorical variables). The KFS confidential microdata may only be accessed through the NORC Data Enclave.
Researchers may apply for a Kauffman-sponsored seat through the Kauffman Foundation or apply directly to NORC for access at $100/week, six month minimum. To apply for a Kauffman-sponsored seat, please send a 3-5 page project proposal that outlines your research project and the need for the confidential data (as opposed to the public use version available for download on our website), as well as your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals are due on the 28th of each month.
