2006 Census Dictionary - ARCHIVED
Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 92-566-X
The 2006 Census Dictionary provides detailed information on every aspect of the Census of Population and Census of Agriculture along with an overview of each phase of the census, from content determination to data dissemination with focus on the changes from 2001. As well, it provides detailed definitions of the Census of Population concepts, universes, variables and geographic terms, including historical information to facilitate the comparison of variables between census years.
New this year in the Internet version is a phased release approach. The continued effort to include supplemental plain language definitions for certain variables, without census or Statistics Canada jargon, will help users better understand the meaning of the definitions and the periodic updates.
