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.
- 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
