Notes: As of January 2011, Labour Force Survey (LFS) estimates reflect population counts based on the 2006 Census, as well as updates to industry, occupation and geography classification systems. LFS data for 1996 through 2010 have been revised based on these modifications. For more information, please see Improvements to the Labour Force Survey (LFS): The 2011 Revisions of the Labour Force Survey (LFS), Statistics Canada Catalogue no.71F0031X, published January 28, 2011.
The number of students is based on a monthly average from September to April and includes full-time and part-time attendance.
LFS estimates for Canada are derived using results from the provinces; the territories are excluded.
Caution should be exercised in interpreting the ratios for the provinces and the differences in ratios between provinces and over time, as small estimates may present fairly high sampling variability. Estimates for small geographic areas, small age-groups, or for cross-classified variables will be associated with larger variability.
For a brief description of this indicator, including the methodology, please see the Handbook for the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program.
