The Census of Population is designed to collect demographic, social and economic information about people and housing on a specific day. Access to these data in the Research Data Centres (RDC) over the last decade has opened up huge research potential given the number of variables, sample size, capacity to analyze small geographic areas and, more recently, linkages to other surveys and administrative datasets.
On Thursday, July 12th 2018 from 1:00pm to 4:00 pm Statistics Canada will hold a webinar presentation to showcase the 2016 Census Research Data Centre (RDC) file. This is the first time such a presentation is being offered to RDC researchers. The presentation will be given by the different census subject-matter experts, including methodology experts, and will be followed by a question period.
This webinar is an opportunity to learn about Census 2016, its content, what has changed and research potential, as well as to discuss comparability issues and methodological questions with a group of Census subject matter experts from Statistics Canada.
The presentation will be in English.
