The UNBC RDC holds over 400 health and social science datasets! We encourage researchers to contact us for assistance with finding data related to your topic, or for formulating a proposal. To view variable-level information about RDC datasets, you can also use the NESSTAR tool. Although NESSTAR is not a comprehensive listing of all datasets, it is a way to begin your research. Another useful tool is the CRDCN publication database, which provides links to publications based on RDC data (e.g., journal articles, theses, reports). By looking over the methodology section from existing publications based on RDC datasets, researchers can get ideas for developing the methodology for their proposals.
