Request for proposals

To increase the accessibility of the Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Survey data, the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, in conjunction with Statistics Canada’s Research Data Centres program, is conducting a pilot project whereby the UCR database will be placed in a select number of RDCs. This pilot project will provide support for the evaluation and refinement of confidentiality vetting rules for the UCR data and an opportunity to improve end-user documentation. Proposals should be submitted by November 19, 2012. Details here.
