The QICSS is co-financed with the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Société et culture (FRQSC).

Mission

The QICSS was established with the specific aim of promoting research within the field of social statistics in Quebec. Central to the project has been the creation of a secure environment in a university setting, where researchers can have access to microdata from Statistics Canada and Institut de la statistique du Québec large-scale population surveys, while respecting the rules of confidentiality. The QICSS' mission does not stop there, however; it also offers support, training and activities designed to disseminate research findings. By bringing under one roof researchers from different institutions and disciplines, the QICSS has become a hub of scientific activity in the field of social statistics in Quebec, Canada and in the international arena.

Research Axes

  • Support and develop cutting-edge research in the field of social statistics
  • Expand the pool of social statistics researchers and train the next generation
  • Make research findings and their implications known to a wider audience
