Description of Figure 6.3

Figure 6.3 demonstrates the breakdown of Mobility status derived from each check box of the mobility 5 years ago question of the 2016 Census of population long-form questionnaire (2A-L, 2A-R). The out of universe category is directly derived from the 'born after May 10, 2011' check box. The mobility universe is further delineated by mover and non-mover (lived at the same address as now). The status 'mover' is again divided into non-migrant (lived at a different address in the same city, town, village, township, municipality or Indian reserve) and migrant. Migrant is again divided into either internal migrant (lived in a different city, town, village, township, municipality or Indian reserve in Canada), or external migrant (lived outside Canada).
