Canada's Data Liberation Initiative
The objective of this project was to document why and how Statistics Canada decided to start sharing microdata with researchers. The experience of Statistics Canada is rich with lessons for other agencies. Statistics Canada faced the same technical, legal, ethical, and resource constraints as most agencies embarking on similar initiatives now face. This working paper was commissioned to provide an "advocacy reference document" to promote more open microdata access policies.
