Guides & Documentation

The Research Data Centres (RDCs) provide a rich source of Statistics Canada microdata for researchers, under secure conditions that govern all aspects of work from data access to publication of analytical output.These secure conditions are outlined in the Researcher guidelines.

The Information and Technical Bulletin (ITB) provides a new forum for RDC researchers to exchange practical information and techniques for analyzing datasets available at the RDCs. It is released in the spring and autumn of each year.

Statistics Canada's periodicals and analytical products

Statistics Canada publishes a variety of analyses in its periodicals and analytical series. These analyses cover a broad range of social and economic topics, and some use the same datasets that are available within the Research Data Centres.
