Estimated population and population according to the census are both defined as being the number of Canadians whose usual place of residence is within that area, regardless of where they happened to be on Census Day. Also included are any Canadians staying in a dwelling in that area on Census Day and having no usual place of residence elsewhere in Canada, as well as those considered non-permanent residents.
Sex ratio
The ratio of the number of men to the number of women. This ratio is usually expressed as an index, with the number of females taken to be a base of 100.
