1. The percentages were calculated on the number of students who were enrolled in a full-time educational activity on October 31st and thus present a snapshot of enrolments on that day. The denominator used to calculate the percentages excludes enrolments for which sex was note reported.
2. Includes college postsecondary programs; college post-diploma programs; collaborative degree programs; university transfer programs from a college or CEGEP (includes associate degrees); and college preliminary year courses.
3. "Undergraduate" enrolment captures those programs leading to a bachelor's degree, an applied degree, a university preliminary year or pre-bachelor, or to an undergraduate-level certificate or diploma. "Graduate" portrays programs leading to a master's degree or other university-graduate-level certificates or diplomas.
Notes: To ensure the confidentiality of responses, all counts are randomly rounded to a multiple of 3. Since the total and subtotals are independently rounded, the total values may not match the sum of the individual values. Similarly, percentage distributions, which are calculated on rounded data, may not necessarily add up to 100%.
These figures on college enrolment should not be compared with those published before PSIS was introduced in 2000. See Table D.1.4 for further information on the data.
All PSIS data are subject to revision.
For a brief description of this indicator, including the methodology, please see the Handbook for the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program.
