Previously, China Data Online was a Tier 2 license with the University of Michigan’s China Data Center (CDC). Unexpectedly, in September 2018, UM’s China Data Center closed its doors; access was cancelled for all resources.

Recently, four UC campuses (Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, and San Diego) began participation in a Tier 2 license with a new vendor, All China Marketing Research Co., Ltd. (ACMR).
