Qualitative Data

Qualitative methods and software

The Academic Data Centre provides access to NVivo Qualitative Analysis on two of its four workstations (it is also available on Library computers M1006 thru M1009). We provide technical support and have reference material available for working with this software, and support the use of NCapture, a companion utility to NVivo for collecting social media (including tweets) and other online content for analysis .

CANSIM (Statistics Canada)

is Statistics Canada's time series database. It contains 1.2 million series in 1,400 tables which cover a wide variety of social and economic aspects of Canadian life. The data collected is from Statistics Canada and other agencies such as the Bank of Canada, CMHC, etc. Access is free to all University of Windsor faculty, staff, and students. Although CANSIM II via the University of Toronto does have a search function, users may have more success using the subject and/or keyword approach offered by Statistics Canada. In this case, copy down the table or series number you are interested in and then plug it into the CANSIM II search engine at the University of Toronto site. Cansim I is no longer being updated as of January 1st, 2002 but is being retained for historical reasons.

Ethics in the Professions: researching an occupation

For this assignment you are asked to find information on employment equity in a selected occupation: breakdown by age, sex, visible minority status, and so on. Your main source of information on these demographic categories is information from the Census of Canada and the National Household Survey (NHS) of Canada. The Census / NHS is done every five years. The most current census data now available is for 2011, but the most detailed data available is still for 2006.

Computer Science Data

Data for Computer Scientists to play with

Any machine-readable data can be used as fodder for computer programming. This page merely attempts to list some datasets of particular interest to computer science researchers: data on computer hardware performance and reliability, data on networks, datasets developed to investigate problems in computer science and artificial intelligence, and so on. Some of these datasets may also be of interest to researchers in mathematics.
