A student is looking for data beyond what the PUMF for the Employment Insurance Coverage Survey can offer. According to <http://www.statcan.gc.ca/rdc-cdr/data-donnee-eng.htm>, the EICS isn't part of the RDC roster. Is the EICS confidential microdata file available for researchers via the RDCs?
Yes, the years available are: 1998-2012. They are working on updating the list of surveys on the StatsCan website. Check the RDC website at: <http://www.rdc-cdr.ca/datasets-and-surveys>
