New URegina data centre collaboration to improve programming, policy decisions

May 16, 2019

The University of Regina, in collaboration with the Government of Saskatchewan and Statistics Canada, has opened the Regina Research Data Centre. A release states that the secured facility allows qualified researchers to access confidential data on issues such as population, household services, and health. "This rich data source truly opens up the possibilities for faculty and graduate student research, while having these data sets at my fingertips also means I can incorporate experiential learning into the classroom, enhancing educational opportunities for me and my students," said URegina Associate Professor of Economics Harminder Guliana. URegina adds that the Ministry of Corrections and Policing is providing the Centre with $250K a year over five years. SK StarPhoenix CBC (SK)
