Georeferencing membership databases


With my new job at the PLAN Institute doing marketing and communications, I have had access to a reasonably sized membership database and been able to create several visualizations with Google Earth to support decision making related to planning around the "Reaching Out" Tour film tour that includes public screening of the film The Ties That Bind by the National Film Board of Canada being planned for October and November of 2006 across Canada.

I would like to expand on the data sets to include organizational relationships between individuals and by disparate forms of ability. According to Statistics Canada there are roughly 3.6 million people considered disabled in Canada however the census data collected on these individuals cannot be mapped or georeferenced. Is there anyone in the geospatial community working in this field or maintaining a database of social relationships that I might use as a model for creating membership surveys?
