QICSS (McGill-Concordia)

Opened in January 2006, this laboratory is located on the McGill University campus and is one of the four branches affiliated to the Quebec Interuniversity Centre for Social Statistics (QICSS). Its creation was made possible thanks to the Canada Research Chair in Social Statistics and Family Change awarded in 2004 to Céline Le Bourdais along with a grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI). The opening of a laboratory on the McGill campus brought the microdata and resources closer to the researchers of both McGill and Concordia Universities. Furthermore, the laboratory also promotes statistical training and interdisciplinary dialogue across both campuses in order to ensure that studies conducted at QICSS make the best possible use of the data and have the widest outreach possible on the academic community, societal organizations and policy makers. Starting in the fall of 2021, the laboratory will also make data from the Institut de la statistique du Québec (ISQ) and administrative data from the Government of Quebec available in a new Centre d'accès aux données de recherche de l'ISQ (CADRISQ).
