The Statistics Canada Research Data Centre (RDC), located in L.R. Wilson Hall, houses a large number of confidential micro-data files. These include the census, numerous surveys related to society, health and education, as well as business (including firm level), immigration, taxation, health and vital statistics administrative data. There are also numerous linked micro-data files including survey and administrative.

The showcase has two parts. The morning session will describe the RDC and its partnership with Data Services in the Mills Library. It will also consists of brief presentations on GIS applications, the use of RDC data to examine the characteristics of medical professionals, an update on linked micro-data files, and RDC data output replication.

Following lunch (which will be provided), the afternoon session will consist of a series of brief presentations from current RDC researchers highlighting their work.

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.
