Note on data quality and disclosure control

For information on data quality, as well as random rounding, data suppression, and other methods of disclosure control, please consult the Guide to the Census of Population, 2016, Catalogue no. 98-304-X, and the reference guides for the individual topics.

Users are advised that when analyzing mobility data in connection with characteristics of the population that may change over time (i.e., marital status, educational attainment, labour force participation, etc.), these characteristics represent the status of an individual at the time of the census, not at the time of the migration.

Estimates of internal migration may be less accurate for small geographic areas, areas with a place name that is a duplicate elsewhere, and for some census subdivisions (CSDs) where residents may have provided the name of the census metropolitan area or census agglomeration instead of the specific name of the component CSD from which they migrated.

Note: Text reduction for Occupation - National Occupational Classification (NOC)

The NOC descriptions are written using the masculine form as they refer to all workers within the included occupations. This has been done in order to lighten the text and to reduce reading burden.

For information on the comparability of the 2016 Census labour force status data with those of the Labour Force Survey, see Appendix 6.1 of the Dictionary, Census of Population, 2016.
