- Footnote 1
Refers to the distance, in kilometres, between the respondent's residence and his or her usual place of work. Commuting distance is calculated as the straight line distance between the residence of the respondent and his or her place of work.
- Footnote 2
Excludes census data for one or more incompletely enumerated Indian reserves or Indian settlements.
- Footnote 3
The National Household Survey assumes that the commute to work originates from the usual place of residence, but this may not always be the case. In some cases, respondents may be on a business trip and may have reported their place of work or mode of transportation based on where they were working during the trip. Some persons maintain a residence close to work and commute to their home on weekends. Students often work after school at a location near their school. As a result, the data may show unusual commutes and an unusual mode of transportation.
