Here's a list of NHS questions, FYI:
We have tabulated them in Excel as well. You can download the spreadsheet here.
Note that these are not questions about the NHS, but rather the actual questions that are found on the National Household Survey.
Today Statistics Canada released profile tables for two National Household Survey topics : Aboriginal Peoples and Immigration and Ethnocultural Diversity. They have published three worthwhile reference documents to accompany the release: a user guide, "Data Quality and Confidentiality Standards and Guidelines", and a statement on data quality.
With the April 19 meeting behind us, it's important to take stock of what we accomplished together. Before we get into it, we should point out that the gathering in Brampton was productive for three reasons. First, we got the chance to meet one another in person. For those who knew each other it was a welcome opportunity to catch up. For the new kids on the block (like me!) it was reassuring to put faces to so many names. Second, we got the chance to see what others were up to, and to show off what we had done. Third, it gave us (the CDP team) the opportunity to (1) explain and refine our plans for the program, and (2) address feedback that you (the Leads) gave us.
The Statistics Canada website has made standard Census products easy to find and download at any given geographic scale and file format. Because these products are now free and open, we won't worry about bringing them into the Community Data Catalogue -- at least not for now. For this reason, this blog post explains how to find standard Census products on the Statistics Canada website.

Several people have been asking me about Beyond 20/20 training in recent weeks. Fortunately, Beyond 20/20 provides a number of online training videos to help new users understand how it works. This post explains Beyond 20/20, and provides links to the training videos for Beyond 20/20 Professional Browser. It's intended for members of the Community Data Program who aren't familiar with the .ivt format. So let's dive in.
