Use of PCCF


I have a RDC researcher who would like to use a PCCF file to link data spatially, if allowable, from the National Longitudinal Study of Children and Youth (NLSCY) with census data in order to obtain a variable for neighbourhood income. If allowable, would the request be at the RDC level of the researcher or the Analyst (who would be authorized to handle the file)?


Is the question about permission and availability or is it about feasibility? For feasibility, the entire proposal will have to be reviewed by subject matter following the usual process, to answer this question correctly.I would advise contacting the RDC Analyst for more information.
