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.

Data users should be aware that there could be some incompatibility between industry and employment income, as both concepts have different reference periods: the week of May 1 to May 7, 2016, and the year 2015, respectively. Moreover, employment income includes income from all jobs worked at during the year 2015, whereas respondents were to report only one industry, the one for which they worked the most hours or the one related to the job of longest duration since January 2015 if they did not have a job during the reference week of May 2016. For more information on income, labour or education concepts, data users should consult the Income Reference Guide, the Labour Reference Guide or the Education Reference Guide.
