Social Statistics Matter - A History of the Canadian RDC Network - (CRDCN publications)

The development of the Canadian Research Data Centre Network (CRDCN) is a remarkable story in the development of quantitative social science research in Canada. From a core group of nine Research Data Centres, when it was launched in the early 2000s, the Network now includes 27 facilities right across Canada. It plays a key role in providing access to a vast array of social, economic, and health data, primarily gathered by Statistics Canada. It also helps to prepare the next generation of social science researchers, by offering essential training in quantitative methods, and to make research count, by disseminating research findings to the policy community and the Canadian public. Thanks to thousands of researchers from more than 25 disciplines who have used this infrastructure through the years, Canadians now know far more about their society than would have been possible otherwise. This book tells the story of this quantum leap forward in quantitative social science research capability in Canada, paying tribute to the men and women who made it happen.
