The UCalgary Research Data Centre (RDC), the Prairie Regional Research Data Centre (PRRDC), is one of 33 university-based RDCs across Canada. RDC researchers can safely access Statistics Canada's anonymized population and household surveys, attitudinal surveys, economic data, and administrative and some linked data. This webinar will provide you with an overview of the RDC, the available data, and the application procedures for being granted access to those data. Some samples of RDC research products (publications and theses) will also be presented.
