Call for Proposals: T2-Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program

Call for Proposals - Economic Research using T2-Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program in the RDCs

A call for proposals for Economic Research using T2-Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program in the Research Data Centres has been released.

Mar 01, 2018

In this call for proposals, Statistics Canada is piloting the use of business microdata at its Research Data Centres (RDCs) located in 23 universities across Canada.  Researchers will work directly with synthetic business microdata before submitting their programs to Statistics Canada staff to be run on the actual microdata.  The pilot will consider only research proposals using the T2-Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program (T2-LEAP), an enterprise-level database that contains key information on firm entry and exit, demographics, finances, and performance. The T2-LEAP has been used to study: employment and business dynamics, industry turnover, productivity growth, high-growth firms, and firm financing, survival and performance.

Researchers are invited to review the following documents on the T2-LEAP data and/or contact the Canadian Center for Data Development and Economic Research (CDER) at to discuss their prospective projects before making an application.

Proposals should be submitted to CDER by April 30, 2018, at
