Workshop Description: Western Libraries in conjunction with Western’s Statistics Canada Research Data Centre (RDC) is offering a workshop on access to Statistics Canada data at Western. The workshop will highlight public / open data products and access, as well as academic access to Public Use Microdata Files (PUMF). The workshop is a good introduction or review of access points to data that is useful for teaching and research. Access to masterfile data is also available to Western researchers through the Real Time Remote Access (RTRA) system and the RDC. The workshop will describe different types of access and the application process for using RTRA and RDC.

This workshop will be of interest to students , instructors and researchers.
