Beyond 20/20

The Beyond 20/20 Browser is a free Windows-based program used to view Beyond 20/20 tables and extracts. Beyond 20/20 is a data browser used at Statistics Canada to organize, manage and disseminate socioeconomic data.

Beyond 20/20's pivoting and nesting capabilities make it easy to switch dimensions and show more than one dimension along rows and columns. In addition, Beyond 20/20's dynamic data format enables you to quickly and easily integrate and manipulate information from your own data sources.  It allows users to display data from different perspectives, perform calculations on data, create simple charts, and save data in formats for use in other programs (along with other operations).

Most notably, Beyond 20/20 allows you to save extracted data in dbase format (.dbf), which is the best option for use with ArcGIS, see Using Geospatial Software section below. For more information on using Beyond 20/20, see Richard Boily and Siobhan Hanratty's Beyond 20/20 presentation from the DLI Bootcamp 2011.
