Appendix 3: Population estimates of incompletely enumerated Indian reserves and Indian settlements in the 2011 Census

In 2011, there were a total of 31 Indian reserves and Indian settlements that were 'incompletely enumerated.' For these reserves or settlements, enumeration was either not permitted or was interrupted before it could be completed, or enumeration was not possible because of natural events (specifically forest fires in Northern Ontario). Data for 2011 are not available for these areas and, therefore, have not been included in tabulations.

Table 1 shows the 2011 results, by province and territory, of the estimated population for these incompletely enumerated Indian reserves and Indian settlements. Note that in the Atlantic provinces and in the three territories, there are no incompletely enumerated Indian reserves or Indian settlements.

The 2011 estimates in the table are purely 'model-based estimates' for 18 of the 31 'incompletely enumerated' reserves and settlements. The validity of these estimates depends heavily on whether the model correctly captured the true underlying situation. This is an unverified assumption. Consequently, these estimates should be used with extreme caution. For the remaining 13 reserves or settlements in Northern Ontario, the data comes from a fall 2011 special collection; estimates of the total population were derived accordingly.
