Census of Agriculture: Agriculture–Population Linkage Data

Tables: 95-633-X

Description: This product presents selected data from the linkage between the Census of Agriculture and the Census of Population at the national and provincial levels, every five years. It provides a socioeconomic profile of the farm population (i.e., operators and their families) at the person, family and household levels, and includes variables such as age, sex, marital status, ethnicity, country of birth, mother tongue, educational attainment and income.

Agriculture–Population Linkage databases have been created quinquennially since 1971, with the exception of 1976 and 2011.

Notes: This publication was discontinued in 2021. For all data related to the release of Agriculture–Population Linkage Data please consult the Census of Agriculture portal.

For 1976, the Agriculture–Population Linkage was not implemented due to a reduced Census of Agriculture.

For 2011, the Census of Population’s mandatory long-form was replaced with the voluntary National Household Survey (NHS), and the Census of Agriculture was linked to the NHS that year. Important data quality considerations regarding the Agriculture–NHS Linkage are available at: https://www.statcan.gc.ca/en/ca2011/dq.
