CanPath has developed a Student Dataset that provides students the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with CanPath data. The CanPath Student Dataset is a synthetic dataset that was manipulated to mimic CanPath’s nationally harmonized data but does not include or reveal actual data of any CanPath participants.
The CanPath Student Dataset is available to instructors at a Canadian university or college for use in an academic course, at no cost. CanPath will provide the Student Dataset and a supporting data dictionary.
Advantages of the CanPath Student Dataset:
- Large sample size (Over 40,000 participants)
- Real-world population-level Canadian data
- Variety of areas of information allowing for a wide range of research topics
- No cost to faculty
- Potential for students to apply for real CanPath data to publish their findings
