• Free access will be available on a competitive
basis e.g., for students or unfunded researchers.
• SUPPORT Unit will be building new curated data
sets. Bring us a proposal!
• Examples of the kinds of projects SPOR will
facilitate.
SPOR Update - January 8, 2013

Methodological Consulting
• There will be expanded methodological
and statistical consulting services through
the Research Methods Unit.
• By providing a nexus for patient-oriented
research, we will provide opportunities for
persons with diverse methodological skills
to meet and find collaborators.

NB Institute for Research, Data
and Training
• Ted McDonald, Professor of Economics at UNB and
Academic Director, NB-RDC, Michael Haan – CRC in Social
Policy at UNB
• A new state-of-the-art facility on the UNB campus for
administrative data from the Province of New Brunswick
o Health: DAD, physician billing & Medicare, cancer
screening
o Children and Youth: CSDS, childcare, test scores,
enrolment
o People at risk: NBCase, NBFamilies
• Infrastructure funds of $1m from CFI, NB Government,
NBHRF; project funds from Canadian Breast Cancer
Foundation, PETL, Population Growth Division. In-kind
contributions from GNB ECO, Health, PETL, SD, PGD
SPOR Update - January 8, 2013

NB Institute for Research, Data
and Training
• New Brunswick currently has no such facility. Researchers
seeking to access administrative data from the province face
a cumbersome and time consuming process that also
imposes a significant burden on government officers
• Linking different databases, even within the Department of
Health, is difficult
• Progress to Date:
o Facility has been completed
o PHIPPA legislation now allows the Department of Health to designate a
facility as a “research data centre”.
o We are currently working on the TRA, PIA, and a Data Sharing
Agreement with the Province
SPOR Update - January 8, 2013
27
Other Developments
• New CIHR CRC in the socioeconomic determinants of
health at UNB Fredericton is about to be advertised
• Statistics Canada Research Data Centre at UNB has
new administrative data sources available or in
development
o Canadian Cancer Registry – Vital Statistics
o Census 1991 – CCR – VS – Tax file
o OHIP billing – hospital discharge abstracts
