Available Datasets (Statistics Canada)

The Quebec Inter-University Centre for Social Statistics (QICSS) offers Quebec's research community free access to the Statistics Canada individual and household surveys' master files (detailed microdata) as well as access to the census analytical files (detailed microdata of the 20% sample of individuals who have answered the 2b form). The data available at the QICSS is divided into 4 main categories:

Public-use versions of these datasets, along with any relevant documentation, have been made available in university libraries across Canada as part of the Data Liberation Initiative. Academics in Quebec have electronic access to survey documentation through Equinox, a cooperative initiative offering internet-based management and distribution of public microdata. Members of Quebec universities participating in Equinox can also download these public files. Access to these public-use datasets is therefore not available at the QICSS.
