12th QICSS New Researchers Conference

CJC 2019

« Data science and social statistics:
Expanding the frontiers of knowledge »

April 2, 2019

École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS)
1100 Notre-Dame West, Montreal, Room A-1170


The pace at which new datasets become available at the QICSS has accelerated considerably in recent years, and there is every reason to believe that this will continue. This trend is part of the greater democratization of data, in Canada as elsewhere. The diversity of data available, the wealth of new datasets that result from the linking of survey data with administrative data, and the accessibility of the metadata required to interpret and understand microdata open up new horizons and push back the frontiers of knowledge.

Every year, the QICSS Young Researchers Conference is an opportunity for exchanges and training around the work of those who will make up the next generation of researchers in social statistics. The 2019 edition will testify to the extent of the researchers' research interests and the resolutely multidisciplinary character of the analyzes conducted at the QICSS. The speakers come from a wide range of social sciences and health disciplines, including sociology, demography, criminology, epidemiology, applied economics, social and preventive medicine, and the environment.
