Finding Canadian Statistics

Finding Canadian Statistics

This session occurs at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus and is part of the Digital Scholarship @UTSC Series.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to search strategies and techniques for accessing and exploring variables, including both averages and distributions, on population, family structure, household size and type, ethnic diversity, languages spoken, labour force participation, and income.

Attendees will work through hands-on exercises to identify patterns, normalize data, create charts, graphs and other simple visualizations using Microsoft Excel.

Note: This workshop will not cover statistical concepts or tests. Only very basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel is required.
