Prairie Regional RDC (Calgary)

The Prairie Regional Research Data Centre (PRRDC) was established in 2001, along with eight other RDCs, under the terms of a grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation. The principal investigator for that grant was Dr. Paul Bernard of the University of Montreal, with Dr. Richard Wanner representing the University of Calgary as a co-investigator. Since the Calgary RDC was initially the only Centre in the prairie provinces, it was named the Prairie Regional RDC, although Centres haves since been established at the Universities of Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Besides the main RDC at U of Calgary's main campus, the PRRDC includes a Satellite RDC at the Foothills Campus, and a branch RDC at University of Lethbriege. The PRRDC has 23 workstations at the main RDC, and 2 workstations at its Satellite at Foothills campus, with dual or widescreen monitors. The main RDC has 3 primary spaces: the workstations area, the training room, and the conference room. Various statistical software are available including Stata, SPSS, SAS, and R, and additional programs and tools such as ArcGIS and Stat/Transfer. Statistical and methodological reference material is available for researchers, as well as software manuals.
