An Introduction to Results and Applications of the Survey of Living Conditions in the Arctic
1University of Alaska Anchorage
The intent of the Survey of Living Conditions in the Arctic (SLiCA) is to measure living conditions in a way that is relevant to Native people in the Arctic. The purpose of measuring living conditions is to better understand the Native peoples of the Arctic and the effects of policies and global change on living conditions. Communities as well as regional, national, and international organizations will be able to use the data to inform their own decisions. Researchers will use the data to investigate ideas about changes in the Arctic.
This presentation describes the SLiCA data set and provides a sample of results for Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Chukotka. The presentation also illustrates the data set’s analytical potential using one of the international analysis themes. For more information, please visit the project website.
