The Complex Emergency Database (CE-DAT) is an international initiative that monitors and evaluates the health status of populations affected by complex emergencies.
CE-DAT is managed by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) and was created in 2003 as an outcome of SMART, an interagency initiative to encourage rational, evidence-driven humanitarian decision-making.
CE-DAT is a database of mortality and malnutrition rates - the most commonly used public health indicators of the severity of a humanitarian crisis. Field agencies use mortality and nutrition indicators to identify and measure the severity of needs in order to prioritize human and financial resources. These indicators have also been shown to be useful in monitoring the extent to which the relief system is meeting the needs of vulnerable populations and thus the overall impact and effectiveness of the relief system.
Today, with over 2,000 surveys and 20,000 health indicators, CE-DAT serves as a unique source of field data for monitoring the health status of conflict-affected populations and for the production of trend analyses, impact briefings and policy recommendations.

The 2016 Census of Population collects data for the total population of Canada. As the amount of data gathered increases, data visualizations have been introduced to help people, business owners, academics, and management at all levels, understand key information derived from the data. Data visualizations can be used to quickly communicate a message, to simplify the presentation of large amounts of data, to see data patterns and relationships, and to monitor changes in variables over time.
The present study provides estimates of the economic and social costs of firearm-related crime in Canada. In this study, firearm-related crime is defined as crime committed with a firearm present or used during the commission of an offence, of which all are considered violent crimes. The impact of firearm-related crime can be both wide-ranging and long-lasting as it directs a society's resources to address the problem and causes unquantifiable pain and suffering to victims and their family members. Examining the financial impact is not a new approach in understanding crime. An understanding of the economic costs of crime can lead to important insights and policy decisions, both in terms of criminal justice policy and in terms of other social problems that compete with crime for government funding and resources.
The Research and Statistics Division (RSD) at the Department of Justice produces and communicates high-quality empirical research and statistical analysis using social science methods as an integral part of the evidence-based policy process.

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.
