Has a synthetic file been created for the 2016 Census master file? If not, is there a date for it?
I can't access the DLI Nesstar right now but I don't recall seeing it there last week. However, I don't see anything for the 2016 Census through the variable search at https://www120.statcan.gc.ca/dli/e1/stu?fq= either.
Unfortunately Census does not create synthetic files, however the PUMF will be available this winter!
