Data Prospector BC

Data Prospector BC is an online inventory of linkable data to help the province's researchers to see, in one location, the data sets available to them for research purposes.

Researchers are able to select a particular data set, see what topics are included in it, and get information on how to request access to the data set. Data Prospector BC includes data sets that are available through PopData, and those that can be accessed through other Canadian organizations.

The tool, coordinated by PopData with the support of the BC SUPPORT Unit, will be updated regularly to ensure that it remains current and comprehensive.
