The Atlantic Research Data Centre (ARDC) is hosting a free half-day information session on datasets available from Statistics Canada for undertaking research related to Aboriginal peoples, including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit populations and communities.
Friday, January 16
Student Union Building
Dalhousie University (6136 University Avenue) Room 307
The session will give participants an overview of the Statistics Canada data that can be used to address issues related to Aboriginal peoples’ demography, health and socio-economic conditions. This will include a presentation of the data currently available, focusing on the recently published 2012 Aboriginal People’s Survey and the 2011 National Household Survey, and will also discuss the use of soon-to-be released datasets, including linked data that hold significant potential for answering questions that were not possible using the traditional data. They also hold potential for developing new partnerships among researchers, academic institutions, government agencies, and research communities.
There is no cost to attend this information session but please register in advance through the Atlantic Research Data Centre website:
