Canadian Survey on Disability 2012 PUMF


After the decision to have no PUMF from the 2012 Canadian Survey on Disability, we're wondering if there is a way to demonstrate that the 2001 and 2006 PALS PUMFS are widely used in the academic community. Is there anyway that we could we get some sense of the use of these surveys through odesi, equinox and/or any other server that has counts for individual surveys?


I included HALS in the list. Any of these downloads could have been used by groups or classes.

Amount of Equinox and/or IDLS Usage, by File Name

Generated 2/10/2015 1:26:57 PM : 459 records

11        HALS_1986_ADULTS_HOU
10        HALS_1986_CHILDREN
199      HALS_1991_ADULTS_HOU
81        PALS2001
130      PALS2006

As a side note, I think that all of the Equinox/IDLS usage stats up to October last year were sent to DLI already. I anticipate sending them final usage figures after the system shuts down.
