Finding Data: Data on Longitudinal Surveys - Canada


  • National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth: Documentation and Microdata files (Canada)
    Long-term study of Canadian children that follows their development and well-being from birth to early adulthood. The study is designed to collect information about factors influencing a child's social, emotional and behavioural development and to monitor the impact of these factors on the child's development over time. Data after Cycle 3 is no longer released to the public. Access is now only at Research Data Centres in Canada.

  • Project Canada
    Begun in 1975, this survey was constructed to provide data on social issues, intergroup relations and religion in Canada. Has taken representative samples of Canadians every five years, creating panel studies through which social change and stability can be monitored. Data for 1975 - 1995 is available. For additional information, see the Project Canada website.

    Sample Size: Varies by survey year, ranging from approximately 1,500 to 1,900 participants.

    Large-scale multi-faceted investigation of human aging. Examines late-life changes in numerous aspects of health, cognition, biological status, adaptivity, and psychosocial factors. Operating in two sites (Edmonton, Alberta, and Victoria, British Columbia), the VLS examines profiles, patterns, and predictors of age-related changes in healthy, community-dwelling middle-aged and older adults.
