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