The goal of the Business Research Microdata (BRM), developed by the Economic Analysis Division at Statistics Canada, is to provide external researchers at Research Data Centres (RDC) a set of ‘core’ firm level variables that are able to satisfy the economic questions their projects seek to answer. These include variables from the balance sheet, statements of income, employment slips, etc. of enterprises in Canada. In addition, EAD has created a number of derived variables for the BRM. These variables are based on economic theory and common usage, and helps to alleviate the burden of correct specification for external researchers. The BRM resources contain a list of variables in the BRM and a data dictionary.
