Ray Bollman's work

RFRC research associate Ray Bollman has analyzed quantitative data on rural Canada, and in 2020-2021, much of this research focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on rural employment.

He also has recently published a paper in the Journal of Rural and Community Development titled "Change in Reporting an Aboriginal Identity: Age Matters"

Ray has requested Statistics Canada population estimates by age and sex for each census subdivision. These can be found here.

Ray has also requested Statistics Canada data on the count of businesses for each census subdivision by NAICS (industry sector) and by Employment Size Category. These data can found here
