Note

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.

Note: Dissemination of suppressed census subdivisions (CSDs)

To facilitate the publication of data for five dissemination areas for which the 'parent' CSDs have been suppressed due to a high non-response rate, the parent CSDs were given a value of 'null.' This 'null' value appears as two dots (..) in Beyond 20/20 products.

Suppressed CSDs set to 'null' are:

The CSD of Listuguj IRI (2406804)
The CSD of Ocean Man 69 IRI (4701809)
The CSD of Seekaskootch 119 IRI (4717801)
The CSD of Nesuch 3 IRI (5931812)

For additional information, please refer to the 2011 Census Dictionary, catalogue number 98-301-X.

The boundaries and names of municipalities (census subdivisions) can change from one census to the next because of annexations, dissolutions and incorporations. To minimize the impact of these municipal changes on data dissemination, the 2011 Census team is producing a profile for dissolved census subdivisions. For additional information, please refer to the
2011 Census Dictionary, catalogue number 98-301-X.

Note: Impact of municipal restructuring

The boundaries and names of municipalities (census subdivisions) can change from one census to the next because of annexations, dissolutions and incorporations. To minimize the impact of these municipal changes on data dissemination, the 2011 Census team is producing a profile for dissolved census subdivisions. For additional information, please refer to the
2011 Census Dictionary, catalogue number 98-301-X.

Note: Census family

Refers to a married couple (with or without children of either and/or both spouses), a common-law couple (with or without children of either and/or both partners) or a lone parent of any marital status, with at least one child. A couple may be of opposite sex or same sex. 'Children' refer to blood, step or adopted sons and daughters (regardless of age or marital status) who are living in the same dwelling as their parent(s), as well as
grandchildren in households where there are no parents present. Sons and daughters who are living with their married spouse or common-law partner, or with one or more of their own
children, are not considered to be members of the census family of their parent(s), even if they are living in the same dwelling. For additional information, please refer to the 2011 on-line Census Dictionary, catalogue number 98-301-X.

Note: Population in private households

Persons in private households or families in private households exclude residents or families of collective dwellings, both institutional and non-institutional. Since 1976, tables on the population (or families) in private households exclude Canadian citizens and landed immigrants (permanent residents) who are abroad either on a military base or attached to a diplomatic mission; such persons are included in counts of the total
population.
