Discontinued Surveys


Does anyone have a list of surveys that have been discontinued since 2006? A former StatCan employee stated this morning that only inconsequential surveys have been cut at the agency. His work focuses strictly on economic surveys. I seem to recall that social surveys took a large hit. I know that the longitudinal surveys were all cut but would like to have more information about the rest of those that have been discontinued.


We started to keep track of some surveys that had discontinued PUMFs, but because researchers use old data and discontinued data we have never thought of keeping a list. We just check IMDB if we need to know the status of a survey. We will discuss starting a list.
