  • Indigenous Policy Research

    The report summarizing the discussion during the policy research workshop on Indigenous issues that the Network held last May in Ottawa is now available. This workshop culminated a two-year partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada to support policy relevant research using data from the 2012 cycle of the Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS). The workshop gathered approximately 65 invitees to discuss the results of these research projects focusing on Indigenous education, employment, and health, as well as the state of the data landscape relative to Indigenous Peoples in Canada. “Ethics,” “respect,” “collaboration,” “synergy,” and “strength” capture the main message from the workshop. Happy reading!

  • Census 2006 linked to hospitalization data

    We are pleased to announce the release of a linked data set that brings together data from  the 2006 long-form Census and the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD), thanks to the collaboration between Statistics Canada and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). These linked data provide information on hospitalization patterns of Canadians and allow for analysis of subpopulations. They will also allow researchers to study the associations between the characteristics of individuals and their use of hospital services.  For more information about this new dataset, click here.
