1. Excludes a small number of cases for which age is not reported.
2. Percentage distribution is based on full-time teaching staff for whom age is reported.
3. Median age of teaching staff is based on individual records for which age is reported.
Notes: Staff for whom age was unknown (year of birth not reported) were excluded.
To ensure the confidentiality of responses, a random rounding process is applied to the data. Since the total and subtotals are independently rounded, the total value 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%.
For a brief description of this indicator, including the methodology, please see the Handbook for the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program.
