Footnote 2

The current breakdown was created using two variables, that is, the 'Place of work census division' variable for those who work at a usual place or at home and for whom a specific location (in these cases a census division) can be determined, and the 'Place of work status' variable for those with no fixed workplace address or those working outside Canada and for whom no census division can be allocated.
