NHS: Coefficients of variation (CVs)
The CV of an estimate is the ratio of the standard error of the estimate and the estimate itself, expressed as a percentage. The CV is used to give an indication of the uncertainty associated with the estimates. Coefficients of variation are available for selected variables for Canada, provinces and territories. Downloadable files ( CSV [87 kb] | TAB [77 kb]) are also available.
Refer to Note: NHS coefficients of variation for a comparison of CVs for a variety of conceptually comparable variable estimates at various levels of geography for the 2011 NHS and the 2006 Census long form.
