African Census Analysis Project (ACAP) All Users

In the initial phase of ACAP, we created a unique data bank that saved data from the 1970, 1980, and 1990 rounds of census enumerations from destruction, and we developed the Pan-African Census Explorer (PACE).  ACAP continues to be the repository of African Census data. African census micro-data are an invaluable source of information for understanding demographic processes and history in Africa. Over the past decade, ACAP has assembled the largest collection of complete census data in the world. Our expanding data collection currently consists of census micro-data from 55 censuses for 26 African nations. New national censuses are added to the collection on a regular basis. Most African nations and various other regional organizations are collaborating with us in this international effort.

The Pan-African Census Explorer (PACE) will facilitate easy access to census data for demographic and statistical analysis. Eventually, country specific versions of PACE could be available to the government agencies to facilitate easy distribution of the data.

Deprivation index, Canada, 2006 All Users

This Canadian deprivation index was created using data from the 2006 census by dissemination area.

There are four versions of the index for the Canadian territory. They cover either Canada as a whole, each region of Canada, certain geographic areas or metropolitan areas. The different tabs allow you to explore each of the versions. Each tab presents a brief description of the version of the index, a map illustrating the distribution of deprivation at the desired level, and multiple tables of statistical data that distribute the Canadian population by age group and by sex for both material and social deprivation.

Each tab also allows users to get information common to all the levels of analysis. First, an equivalence table allows users to link the dissemination area, certain geographic areas and the deprivation indices. A program for SAS assignment is also available so users can merge the material and social deprivation index into administrative files or into their analyses, as long as the files have a 6-digit postal code variable. A municipal code is preferred but not mandatory. A user guide comes with this program. Finally, a series of publications associated with the deprivation index is available.
