Statistics Canada Microdata

Data Liberation Initiative (DLI): Statistics Canada division which makes available public use microdata files (PUMFs), databases and geographic files. The DLI primarily distributes StatCan microdata but also includes the Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF) and some data from the Canadian Insistute for Health Information's Discharge Abstract Database (DAD). Some of these files may be retrieved from the <odesi> portal. Other files must be requested directly from the Data Librarian. For more information, please contact data@laurentian.ca.

Research Data Centers (RDC): RDCs provide researchers with access, in a secure university setting, to microdata from population and household surveys. The centres are staffed by Statistics Canada employees. RDCs are located throughout the country; the closest RDC to Laurentian is in North Bay, Ontario at Nippising University. For more information, please contact data@laurentian.ca.
