About this tabulation
|Release date:||May 29, 2012|
|Topic:||Age and sex|
Note: Population universe
The population universe (target population) of the 2011 Census includes the following groups: Canadian citizens (by birth or by naturalization) and landed immigrants (permanent residents) who: 1) have a usual place of residence in Canada; 2) are abroad either on a military base or attached to a diplomatic mission; or 3) are at sea or in port aboard merchant vessels under Canadian registry or Canadian government vessels. Since 1991, the target population also includes persons with a usual place of residence in Canada who are claiming refugee status, who hold study permits, or who hold work permits, plus family members living with them; for census purposes, this group is referred to as non-permanent residents. The population universe does not include foreign residents.
