Statistics Canada provides data from many of its surveys in Public Use Microdata Files (PUMFs). Some variables are excluded or grouped in PUMFs to protect respondent confidentiality. Researchers who need the complete data may apply for access through the Research Data Centres (RDC) Program. RDCs provide secure access to Statistics Canada data that would not otherwise be available, including microdata Master Files from population and household surveys, administrative data holdings, and linked data. RDC research may be appropriate when:
For a list of Master Files and variables available through the RDC Program visit the official list of files available.
Note that there is an application approval process which can take some time and is generally not available for undergraduate work. All analysis must be done within the secure environment of the Research Data Centre. The UBC RDC is located on the second floor of Koerner Library.
