Welcome to AIC

Welcome to Anthropology Information Central (AIC), AAA's new research clearinghouse. If you are interested in trends in enrollments, employment, careers, and anthropology’s impacts, AIC is the place for you to turn.

AIC will grow substantially over the next few years, and we have plans to make datasets available for use in student assignments and internships. For more information on incorporating AIC data into your work—inside and outside the academy—please contact Daniel Ginsberg, Professional Fellow, at
