Tuition Costs by Institution

A researcher is looking for recent (2016/17 and 2017/18) data from Tuition and Living Accommodation Costs (TLAC). Stats Can has released summary tables from the latest survey, but they only list costs by province, and she needs it by institution. I was able to locate data from 1993-2015 in Odesi but nothing from the past two years. Are there plans to release a PUMF for the latest years, and if so, when?

Answer 1:
You might check out:  … I noted that the source is Statistics Canada. 

Answer 2:
 there are no PUMFs planned for TLAC data.  From subject matter: “We don’t produce any PUMF for TLAC, only standard tables.”

Now, the years your request caught my eye.  I just released the 2017/18 data* last week and sent a notification to the list.  Odesi are able to extract the tables for their users and release through their channels.  The data has been available since October 5th 2017 on the FTP site.

*Tuition and Living Accommodation Costs (TLAC) for 2017-18 (ver09) are now available on the EFT site.
