Aboriginal Peoples Survey

Question

When will the APS 2012 microdata be available in a PUMF or even in a RDC? I see a date on the website as November 2013, but the webpage is from January 2012.

Answer

As presented in APS Webinar (http://cudo.carleton.ca/dli-training/2735), the upcoming APS Release dates are:

Winter 2014: Concepts and Methods Guide, APS data available in the Research Data Centres
Later in 2014: Report on Inuit health, Report on M├ętis employment, Report on school experiences of First Nation children and youth living off reserve, APS data tables on the Statistics Canada website (CANSIM tables), Public Use Microdata File (PUMF).

The APS masterfile is available in the RDCs and that a PUMF is tentatively planned to be released in January 2015.
