Scientific Use and Impact of Socioeconomic Data across Disciplines

Downs, Robert R.

The NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center, SEDAC, one of the Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) of the NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS), has been acquiring, curating, archiving, distributing, and supporting the use of scientific data products and services for thirty year to improve understanding of human interactions in the environment. Through the years, several studies of the scientific impact of SEDAC data have been conducted to assess the interdisciplinary use of SEDAC data and how to improve the data products and services offered. The results of several of these studies on the interdisciplinary use of SEDAC data are presented.
