Western Libraries

Wed. Oct 26   12:30-1:30   SSC 5220

Light lunch will be available from 12:00 noon
at SSC room 5230 (Centre for Population, Aging and Health)

Western faculty and students have access to a wide array of data for research and teaching purposes through agreements such as the Data Liberation Initiative and the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research.

This presentation will show how to locate and download data from three sites: (1) Western’s Equinox Data Delivery System, (2) Ontario Council of University Libraries’ <odesi> database, and (3) the web site of Statistics Canada.

The presentation will also describe differences in products offered at the sites and demonstrate access to both microdata and aggregated data products such as Beyond 20/20 files from the 2006 Census.

We hope to see you there.
