The Cooperative Data Program (CDP) allows organizations, through participation in the program, to obtain data and services offered, collected and maintained by the Research & Information Services (RIS) Department, at a low cost.

Data and services included in the CDP are those that RIS has provided for many years. These data are used extensively by entities for a variety of purposes, as evidenced by the calls RIS staff receive to discuss the data, inquire about the timing of the next update, and ask for assistance in interpreting or analyzing the data. In the past, data collection and dissemination efforts were supported through a variety of state and federal grants. However, the funding from those sources has either diminished or been eliminated. Believing the data to be valuable to the region, the Cooperative Data Program was established as a replacement funding source.

Participants in the program have unlimited access to data through a secure, web-based interface.
