What’s new?

LISA is a longitudinal survey that collects information from respondents across Canada regarding their jobs, income, education, health, and family, and can be used to examine multiple aspects of the life and well-being of Canadians, including those related to the workplace.

The third wave (2016) of the Longitudinal and International Study of Adults (LISA) is now available in Research Data Centres. The LISA 2016 (Wave 3) release on December 4th, 2018 includes new content on post-secondary educational history, Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs), work-integrated learning, assets and debts, and economic hardship.

In addition, LISA 2012 (Wave 1) and LISA 2014 (Wave 2) have been re-released due to some data revisions. An updated weighting strategy has been applied to LISA 2014 (Wave 2).

LISA is sponsored by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and administered by Statistics Canada. There are now six years of rich data that can contribute to the knowledge required for Canada’s current and emerging policy directions.
