This data table complements analysis in the education Census in Brief articles. In order to meet the analytical requirements of the articles focusing on the labour market outcomes and earnings of bachelor's graduates, those who studied Law (22.0101) and Pharmacy (51.2001) have been excluded from this table. They were excluded from the analysis because, at the bachelor's level of education, these programs require previous university level education for admission. Excluding those who studied Law and Pharmacy made the remaining fields of study at the bachelor's level more comparable. Only tables specifying these exclusions are affected.

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.

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.
