The Longitudinal Administrative Databank (LAD) Dictionary is a reference document containing pertinent information for those working with the LAD data. The dictionary contains definitions of all variables on the LAD and where relevant, provides further detail about the availability and historical comparability of these variables over time. Tables are also included summarizing the components of key total income variables and how they differ over time. The dictionary also contains tables of counts and amounts for many of the variables for the most recent years.

Data are now available on the LAD for 1982 to 2006.
