September 19, 2012
Topic :
Structural type of dwelling and collectives
Variables :

Note: Household universe

The household universe pertains to the person or the group of persons (other than foreign residents) who occupy a dwelling and do not have a usual place of residence elsewhere in Canada. Household variables are distinct from dwelling variables, in that the latter ones pertain to dwelling characteristics, not to persons occupying dwellings. 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: Private households

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