Emigration data, which comes from Canada Revenue
Agency (CRA), were revised by CRA. In addition, minor provincial and age distribution
adjustments were made to the estimates.
The difference in this exclusion
is caused by the adjustments in the collection procedures in the 2011 Census.
Adjustments were made to clearly distinguish between nursing home and residence
for senior citizens, with the former being an institutional collective dwelling
while the latter is not. In the 2006 Census, the two types of collective
dwellings were tallied together under “Special care facilities”.
The impact from this adjustment varies from province to province. In the case
of Quebec, the estimates of institutional residents were revised downward
as a result.
