Bradley A. Corbett, Ph.D.

Analyst, Research Data Centre 

Wed. Nov. 9   12:30-1:30   SSC 5220

Light lunch will be available from 12:00 noon
at SSC room 5230 (Centre for Population, Aging and Health)

Building on the presentation on October 26 regarding the access to  Public Use Files, this presentation will demonstrate how users can gain access to Statistics Canada’s Microdata Files. These files are non-anonymized,  and sensitive data such as actual income are not suppressed or categorized. 

Longitudinal data like the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY) are also available for analysis of trends across time. In Canada, these data are currently accessible through the Research Data Centers in university campuses across the country. The presentation will highlight some of the datasets and explain how researcher can gain access to these data.

 We hope to see you there.
