Does anyone know whether the LFS would be eligible for RDC access? Also – in our DLI files we have CMAs of Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver – is it safe to say that in the Master Files – all CMAs would be available?
The LFS is available on a special needs basis. Researchers interested in using the LFS microdata are advised that the LFS databases are complex and that support is generally required from the Labour Statistics Division to use these files. Therefore,
researchers with project proposals that require access to LFS microdata are requested to submit their application for access and proposal directly to the Labour Statistics Division of Statistics Canada.
As for the second question, all CMAs are available on the master file.
