Semi-custom cross tabulations

Catalogue no. 97C0002

Modified on June 26, 2007

Major characteristics

Semi-custom tabulations allow users to replicate the data content of standard topic-based tabulations for custom geographies or a fixed profile for custom geographies or custom target groups. The fixed profile, which cannot be modified, contains a wide range of census characteristics in a compact and easy to use format. The data content is similar to, but not the same as the standard profile published on our website. Semi-custom tabulations contain three types of tables, semi-custom profiles, target group profiles and semi-custom cross tabulations.

Semi-custom cross tabulations enable users to replicate the content of published topic-based tabulations (TBT) data for the geographic area(s) and output medium of their choice.

Some topic-based tabulations provide a simple overview of the country; others consist of three or four cross-tabulated variables; and still others are of special or analytic interest. Available for 1971 and 1981 to 2006 Censuses.
