Ontario Universities moving forward with DDI

Presenter 1
Michelle Edwards
Data Resource Centre Coordinator, University of Guelph

The art of creating dataset codebooks using the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) in Canada has been slowly gaining ground. The University of Guelph has been marking up codebooks for the past 5 years and is now involved in a collaborative effort with partner Universities in Ontario and Statistics Canada to determine a core set of tags and best practices procedure of completing the tags. This paper will discuss why some Ontario universities have chosen to move away from their home grown systems and implement DDI compliant systems and how working with Statistics Canada will benefit the Canadian data community.
