Concept Description

Last Updated: 2013-07-15


    The Social Assistance Management Information Network (SAMIN) Research Data Set was created for the initial research work with the Employment and Income Assistance (EIA) data housed in the MCHP Data Repository. This data set combined variables from the various tables in the SAMIN database into a single SAS data set. The data set contains one record per person (client) for each month that they are present in the SAMIN database by fiscal year. Some variables are recorded on a person basis (client) and others on a family basis (case). This data set includes information on employment and income assistance (EIA) recipients in Manitoba.

    NOTE: The SAMIN data set is also referred to as the Social Allowances Management Information Network (SAMIN) data set.
