Virtual Workshop: Disseminating Census Data: Learning from Experience 

February 16, 2022

The workshop’s focus is on challenges associated with the dissemination of contemporary and historical census data to academic researchers and the public. By bringing together experts from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Ireland, we seek to understand how creators and stewards of Census data, inside and outside of government, approach dilemmas associated with its dissemination to stakeholders, and also to create an international community of practice regarding these matters.

Hosted by NEST, the Workshop is organized by the Canadian Census Data Discovery Partnership, an ongoing research project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The Partnership’s goal is to construct a detailed searchable inventory of all Canadian historical census information sources with the longer-term goal of creating a portal to facilitate access to historical census data by a wide range of potential users.
