About the presentation
In June 2023, BC Stats released a Guide on Using Categorical Race and Ethnicity Variables to support anti-racism research in British Columbia. This tool will help users of administrative and survey data to appropriately and consistently incorporate race and ethnicity variables into their projects. In this talk, Tatiana Kim discusses the challenges and lessons learned in the process of developing it as well as implications for research in British Columbia.
