UBC Library Works With FRDR to Make Statistics Canada Data More Discoverable

October 2, 2020

Portage and the UBC Library’s Abacus Data Network are pleased to announce the addition of the Statistics Canada Open License Dataverse to the Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR) Discovery Service

The Statistics Canada Open License Dataverse includes more than 1,000 public use microdata data files (PUMFs) as well as additional datasets that are not currently part of the federal Open Government Portal. The Abacus Data Network is a data repository collaboration that involves the University of British Columbia (UBC), Simon Fraser University (SFU), the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) and the University of Victoria (UVic).

FRDR currently has over 70 Canadian research data repositories included in its discovery service, with more being added.
