Institute for Social Research (ISR)
Institute for Social Research provides consultative and support
services, many of which are offered without charge, to undergraduate
students conducting research primarily in the social sciences, but
also in the biological and physical sciences.
Institute houses the largest university-based survey research organization
in Canada and the staff of ISR's Survey Research Centre carries
out all phases of survey research, from questionnaire and sample
design, through data collection, to the preparation of machine-readable
data files, statistical analysis and report writing.
Institute's Statistical Consulting Service (SCS) provides assistance
in research design, sampling, questionnaire design, statistical
computing and statistical analysis. SCS also sponsors short courses
on statistical analysis, research methodology and the use of statistical
software (including SAS and SPSS). These courses are offered in
the fall, winter and spring each year.
Data Archive provides access to results of studies conducted by
the Institute and other major Canadian surveys. The Archive also
provides access to official statistics such as the census aggregate
and public-use data files from the Canadian Census.
students may contact the Institute to arrange for consultation in
any of these areas or to enquire about upcoming courses.
