1. Aboriginal population refers to those persons who reported identifying with at least one Aboriginal group, i.e., North American Indian, Métis or Inuit.
2. Data prior to 2007 are for Western Canada only; i.e., Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia; data for 2007 and 2008 are for Canada. Labour Force Survey (LFS) estimates for Canada are derived using LFS results from the provinces; the territories are excluded. The data are not comparable with those in Table E.3.2 as an experimental weight is used here.
3. Includes no education or education below high school graduation.
4. Includes high school graduation or some postsecondary education (not completed).
5. Includes trade certificate or diploma from a vocational school or apprenticeship training; non-university certificate or diploma from a community college, CEGEP, school of nursing and similar programs at this level; university certificate below bachelor's level.
6. Includes bachelor's degree; university degree or certificate above bachelor's degree.
Notes: The unemployment rate is based on a monthly average from January to December. In 2004, the monthly average is from April to December. Caution should be exercised in interpreting the provincial ratios and differences in ratios between provinces and over time, as small estimates may present fairly high sampling variability. Estimates for small geographic areas, for small age-groups or for cross-classified variables will be associated with larger variability.
