What is the Data Center?


The general objective of the Data Center is to collect, organize and systematize all the databases available in the CEDE to have them available through a platform for internal and external use, according to the different levels of confidentiality.

Through the Data Center, CEDE seeks to provide free and open access to a complete set of microdata on development at the national, departmental and municipal levels. Additionally, it seeks to be a reference for the design, capture and processing of information and for the generation of socioeconomic indicators.

The Data Center participates in the creation of information systems that allow researchers and non-researchers to follow up on different topics that are of general interest, in order to become a reference for decision making. Currently, the Data Center leads the creation, updating and monitoring of databases such as the CEDE Municipal Panel and the Electoral Results Base.

On the other hand, the Data Center provides support and advice to students and professors of the University in their research projects. This accompaniment consists of evaluating the viability of access to the required data, evaluating the subject to be investigated given the availability of information and making the request of the bases.
