My Calendar

The Statistics Canada Research Data Centre (RDC), located in L.R. Wilson Hall, houses a large number of confidential micro-data files. These include Statistics Canada’s population, social, and health surveys, as well as the Census and administrative databases.

This showcase is divided into two parts. The morning session will describe the RDC and its partnership with Data Services in the Mills Library, as well as presentations on

1) GIS applications,
2) newly available business (including firm-level) data,
3) linking health administrative data files (in-patient and emergency), and
4) post-secondary education data (including administrative files linked to tax data and the 2016 Census).

After a catered lunch, the afternoon session will consist of 4-5 researcher presentations highlighting the type of work that is being conducted in the Centre.

The event is open to all McMaster students, staff and faculty and will be of interest to those working in the RDC, as well as potential researchers who are considering making use of Statistics Canada’s micro-data files. RDC staff will be available throughout the day to answer questions on the data files highlighted and others in our collection.
