UNBC Research Data Centre

The UNBC Research Data Centre provides Northern BC researchers with the opportunity to access and analyse detailed microdata from an increasing array of survey, census and administrative data.  The UNBC Research Data Centre is affiliated with the British Columbia Inter-University Research Data Centre (BCIRDC), which is a member of the Canadian Research Data Centre Network (CRDCN).

The UNBC RDC holds over 400 health and social science datasets!

In order to access RDC data, researchers must complete the application process. Graduate and honours students are encouraged to apply to use the data to support their research.  You are encouraged to contact us while preparing your application (rdc@unbc.ca or 250-960-5332).  We can provide advice on dataset selection and review your proposal/application before submission.  As the application process can take up to 2 months, we encourage researchers to plan ahead when developing research projects and applying for access to the data.
