Public Release Data available from University of Alberta Libraries
Digital Initiatives has released 35 years of survey data into the University of Alberta Libraries Dataverse. The surveys, collected between 1977 and 2014, were compiled by the U of A’s Population Research Lab in the Department of Sociology. The Alberta Survey, previously known as the Edmonton Area Survey and the All Alberta Survey, measures the public opinion of Albertans on a diverse range of topics and issues relevant to the social environment of the province. Each dataset includes a downloadable SPSS data file, a questionnaire/codebook, and a methodological report. The survey data can also be searched and manipulated within Dataverse, including the ability to search for unique variables across datasets, and perform advanced statistical analyses.
