1. Refers to those persons who reported identifying with at least one Aboriginal group; i.e., North American Indian, Métis or Inuit.
2. Data are for Western Canada only (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia); data for 2007 through 2011 are for Canada. Labour Force Survey (LFS) estimates for Canada are derived using LFS results from the provinces; the territories are excluded. LFS revised the weights used for the Aboriginal population data which has resulted in the revision of several previously published estimates.
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; and university certificate below bachelor's level.
6. Includes bachelor's degree and 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/territorial ratios and differences in ratios between provinces/territories 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.
For a brief description of this indicator, including the methodology, please see the Handbook for the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program.
