1. Final response rates for private and collective occupied dwellings.

Notes: These final rates are obtained after data processing and data quality verification. They are calculated as the number of private and collective dwellings that returned a completed questionnaire divided by the number of private and collective dwellings classified as occupied on the Census database. The final occupancy classification of dwellings is based on the analysis of data collected by field staff, data provided by respondents and the results of a sample study on the quality of the dwelling occupancy status.
