A student is wondering whether or not he could use the SPSD/M in a project.  His deadline is very near and I am under the impression there is a relatively steep learning  steep learning curve associated with the product.  I have not noticed/found any tutorials to give him an idea as to what is involved and how long it might take to learn to use it.

Any comments about your experiences with it will be welcome.

The DLI hosted a webinar on the SPSDM in the Winter of 2016. The session materials are available on the DLI Training Repository: https://cudo.carleton.ca/dli-training/4078

For more information on the SPSD/M, please see http://www.statcan.gc.ca/eng/microsimulation/spsdm/spsdm

If you have any specific questions on the product, we can contact the SPSDM team here at Statistics Canada on your behalf.
