There are hundreds of data sets available at the federal level related to health, vital statistics, physical activity, nutrition and food security, consumer finances, child health, health promotion, labour force, literacy skills, and more.

At the provincial level, there are linkable data sets relating to hospitalizations, outpatient visits, healthy toddler assessments, vital stats, breast cancer screening and more. On May 1, at Hazen Hall on the UNB Saint John campus, come and hear from the researchers and analysts that are using federal and provincial data to better understand the issues facing our province and country and participate in a discussion about how you could use this data to advance your own work.
