Using Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program data for Economic Research in the RDCs
Statistics Canada is piloting the use of business microdata in the Research Data Centres (RDCs). To this end, a synthetic version of T2-Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program (T2-LEAP) will be made available in the RDC for approved projects. T2-LEAP can be used to study employment and business dynamics, industry turnover, productivity growth, high-growth firms, and firm financing, survival and performance. During this webinar, additional information will be provided on the dataset, the pilot, and on working with the T2-LEAP
