Settled area is based on Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's (AAFC) 30 m land cover code for developed areas. Some northern areas only partially covered by the AAFC land cover were supplemented with estimates derived from Statistics Canada’s population and settlements data and AAFC's 30 m land cover (see Map 1, Appendix C in Statistics Canada, 2013, "Measuring ecosystem goods and services in Canada," Human Activity and the Environment, Catalogue no. 16-201-X for geographic coverage).
The total for farm area is a national total and is represented by the variable 'total farm area' from the Census of Agriculture. Any differences between the results by ecozone and national totals are due to data suppression to protect confidentiality. See Statistics Canada, 2008, Census of Agriculture: Environmental Geography Aggregations of Census Farm Units (survey number 8012) for further details.
Natural and naturalizing land area is calculated as the residual landscape of the ecozone that is not settled or used for agriculture.
Data presented for Settled area are for 2000; Change for Settled area is from 2000 to 2011.
