Data available

Printer-friendly version

Population Data BC (PopData) holds 20 data sets from two federal and 7 provincial sources. These data are linkable to each other, and to external data sets, where approved by the data provider.

Data are received and incorporated into the data holdings throughout the year. We generally receive data between four to ten months after the end of the calendar or fiscal year. It can then take up to six months to validate, link and document the data before they are ready for research use.

We also provide access and linkage to two external data sets, PharmaNet and the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS). Please note that these data sets are not held in-house at PopData and additional costs for access and linkage may apply.

Spatial data may also be used in conjunction with data sets held in-house at Population Data BC.
