The National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS) is in the process of designing a new open data platform which will provide a community for nonprofit practitioners, researchers, and policy-makers to download, create, explore, and share data themselves.
While this process is underway, please use the following links for NCCS resources and information:
The NCCS Data Archive
The NCCS Data Archive is our first step in making NCCS data more accessible and open. The NCCS Data Archive contains all the IRS Business Master Files, NCCS Core Files, Digitized Data Files, and IRS Statistics of Income Division Exempt Organizations Sample Files previously accessed through registration on http://nccsweb.urban.org. The NCCS Data Archive also contains the new NCCS 2014 and 2015 Core files, and will be the primary source for updated NCCS data going forward.
The files hosted on the NCCS Data Archive are presented free of charge as a service to the research community, and accessible without registration. All files are presented in CSV file format for easy download and access.

For all current NCCS publications, as well as other briefs and reports.
We strongly recommend users refer to the NCCS Data Archive for current NCCS data. The nccsweb.urban.org website is no longer being updated. We have moved a selection of the features previously hosted on nccsweb.urban.org to an interim site, but these tools are not being updated with the new data found on the NCCS Data Archive. Therefore, we are not offering new registrations or providing technical support for the tools at the following interim link.
The NCCS Table Wizard is no longer being updated, and has been deactivated at this time. The information previously supported by the Table Wizard is being retired in favor of updated information on our forthcoming open data platform (noted above). In the interim period, users can find the most recent NCCS data available at the NCCS Data Archive. For information on how to use NCCS data files in your analysis, please see our “Beginner’s Guide to Using NCCS Data.
