Population Data BC (PopData) manages 21 data sets from two federal and 6 provincial sources. These data are linkable to each other, and to other externally-managed data sets (including researcher-collected data), where approved by the data provider. Spatial data may also be used in conjunction with data sets managed by Population Data BC.

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

PharmaNet and National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS) data are pulled directly from the BC Ministry of Health HealthIdeas database for approved projects.
