Call for Proposals - UCASS Academic Staff Survey Data (1970 to 2010)

A call for proposals to the University and College Academic Staff System (UCASS) data base for 1970 to 2010 / Data Pilot Project has been released.

Mar 08, 2018

In this call for proposals, Statistics Canada is conducting a pilot project to provide access to the University and College Academic Staff System (UCASS) data base for 1970 to 2010.  The pilot project will give researchers access to these data in a Statistics Canada Research Data Centre (RDC) and will aim to evaluate and improve confidentiality vetting rules and help to improve documentation for researchers.

The UCASS collects data on a wide range of socioeconomic characteristics that provide a detailed portrait of full-time university academic staff in Canada. The data collected include gender, age, principal subject taught, salary and administrative stipends, province or country of degrees earned, and academic rank.

Proposals should be submitted to Darren Lauzon, Regional Manager - Research Data Centre Program by April 13, 2018, at Darren.Lauzon@canada.ca.

Further information on the scope of the pilot and submission objectives is available here:
