  • Articles and reports: 91F0015M2021001
    Description:

    Currently, Statistics Canada does not provide a geographic unit representative of downtown neighbourhoods within its standard geographic classification. The objective of this article is to identify areas which accurately represent the downtowns located in the census metropolitan areas (CMA) of Canada, using Censuses of Population and local knowledge. These boundaries will allow a more effective dissemination of essential statistics by Statistics Canada, especially in the context of future census data releases.

  • Articles and reports: 91F0015M2020003
    Description:

    This article paints a portrait of census coverage levels from 1991 to 2016 through the examination of net census undercoverage rates. It reveals that CNU rates are relatively low and stable over time. However, CNU rates fluctuate based on population characteristics. These rates are higher among young adults, particularly men, individuals who live in the territories or on Indian reserves, those who are separated or single, and those whose mother tongue is a language other than English or French. Canadian CNU rates and the characteristics of harder-to-enumerate populations are similar to what is observed internationally.

  • Profile of a community or region: 17-26-0001
    Description:

    Geographic proximity to service centres and population centres is an important determinant of socio-economic and health outcomes. Consequently, it is a relevant dimension in the analysis and delivery of policies and programs.

    To measure this dimension, Statistics Canada developed an Index of Remoteness of communities. For each populated community (census subdivision), the index is determined by its distance to all the population centres defined by Statistics Canada in a given travel radius, as well as their population size.

  • Public use microdata: 98M0001X
    Description:

    The Individuals File, 2016 Census Public Use Microdata Files (PUMF) provides data on the characteristics of the Canadian population. The file contains a 2.7% sample of anonymous responses to the 2016 Census questionnaire.

Tabulations excluded from other Census products can be created or relationships between variables can be analyzed using different statistical tests. PUMFs provide quick access to a comprehensive social and economic database about Canada and its people.

    This product contains the data file (in ASCII format); user documentation and supporting information; all licence agreements; and SAS, SPSS and Stata program source codes to enable users to read the set of records.
