Datastream is a valuable research tool, providing access to international financial and economic time series data.  When the David Lam Library closed its facilities at the end of May, 2010,  access to Datastream was made available in Koerner Library, Level 2. 

Now, Datastream has also been downloaded to all 12 computers in the PhD lab (Rix 202).  Thank you to Peter Watt, IT Technician of Sauder School’s Learning and Technology Services, for downloading Datastream to these computers and making this terrific resource available Sauder’s PhD students.  For a refresher on using Datastream, you can view these tutorials from the Jackson Library.

Changes in the way census information will be collected due to privacy concerns is concerning many Canadians
as well as the research community.
 
The long form questionnaire which contains valuable information for researchers and StatsCan will be eliminated
and replaced with a new voluntary National Household Survey form and the results will never be released.

According to the Vancouver Sun story: "The idea of doing away with the long census questionnaire form,
transferring the questions to the NHS and no longer releasing the information did not become public until Saturday, \
when it appeared in a  government publication."
