Data Query Tool Options
The College of Nurses of Ontario supports health human resources stakeholders through the collection and release of nursing data. The College continually reviews the data it collects and, based on internal business needs, external requirements and quality improvement initiatives, will occasionally make changes to the data collected. These changes often do not alter our reporting environment but, on occasion, changes require the College to re-examine how it reports nursing data. In 2011, the College significantly modified how it collects nursing employment data by requiring members to provide full details on all their employers and by revising its list of employment settings. This allows for greater understanding of the employment profile of members; however, comparisons to employment data collected before 2011 are no longer possible. These changes also mean that the College's current data query tool could not accommodate the new data structure. As a result the College developed two new tools to allow stakeholder to gain access to this enriched data set.
Note: The data query tool only includes data from the General and Extended Classes.
Member Demographics Tool: This tool allows reports to be produced on member level data (i.e., data that refers to an individual). Member level data attributes include age, gender, location of initial education, employment status and working status. As the College has historically collected information at the member level this information is available from 1992 to present.
Nursing Employment Positions Tool: This tool reports on the information that relates to the nursing employers that a member has reported. The number of employment positions will exceed the number of members who are employed in nursing because members can have more than one nursing employer.. Members have been required to report on all employers as of 2011 and, as such, this data is only available from 2011 onward.
Member Demographics and Nursing Employment Positions Tool: This tool allows access to data previously reported in the original Data Query Tool. The interface has been updated to match the "look and feel" of the new tools. Due to the change in the data collected data is available only for 1992 to 2010.
