Project Tasks

February 2003: A beta version of the 1881 Census of Canada database is now ready for historical research. Interested researchers are requested to contact Lisa Dillon for information on how to obtain this database. Genealogists are asked to consult the website of the Latter-Day Saints.

March 2003: Lisa Dillon has been awarded a Canadian Foundation for Innovation grant for new researchers to create the Historical Demography Research Infrastructure. This four-year grant will establish at the Université de Montréal a physical and virtual facility dedicated to the development and dissemination of historical population data. Dillon has also been awarded a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada grant for the project "Canadian Households Across Time and Space: Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal Analyses of Complex Family Patterns in Late Nineteenth-Century Canada". This project will involve integrating the 1881 Canadian Census data with similar data from 1871 and 1901, as well as linking individuals from the 1871 microdata sample to the 100% 1881 census database.

July 2003: Historical Methods and History and Computing will both be publishing "Best practices with large databases on historical populations" by Kees Mandemakers (International Institute of Social History, Amsterdam) and Lisa Dillon later this year. In the next few months, Dillon will be making changes to this website to bring it in line with this protocol, which includes rules relating to the on-line documentation of historical population microdata. Please follow this link to read the protocol, "Best practices...".
