9th QICSS New Researchers Conference

Investigating Social Issues with Social Statistics: The importance of detailed microdata

Data access issues have been debated very frequently in 2015 by various stakeholders in the field of social statistics, highlighting the paramount importance of access to detailed microdata for research: Council of Canadian Academies ReportQuebec Chief Scientist’s presentation, reinstatement of the census long form, etc. In this context, it is more important than ever to demonstrate how access to timely adequate detailed data can help researchers shed light on a wide range of social issues and to show how crucial it is for training the next generation of researchers. The 9th QICSS New Researchers Conference aims to highlight a range of approaches that use social statistics to study various social issues and to demonstrate the vitality and relevance of research conducted by young researchers.
