Please be aware that UNBC recently signed a license agreement, as a member of Statistics Canada’s Data Liberation Initiative (DLI) program, which allows UNBC students and researchers access to the Social Policy Simulation Database and Model (SPSD/M).
Brief description: The Social Policy Simulation Database and Model (SPSD/M) is a tool designed to assist those interested in analyzing the financial interactions of governments and individuals in Canada. It can help one to assess the cost implications or income redistributive effects of changes in the personal taxation and cash transfer system. (Source: SPSD/M: Product Overview)
