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 January 1996 through December 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 participation rate is based on a monthly average from September to April and includes full-time and part-time attendance. "Other" types of education from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) are not included in the three types of schools: primary or secondary school; community college, junior college or CEGEP; and university, and are excluded from the numerators for the totals.
The elimination of Grade 13 (Ontario Academic Credits [OAC]) in Ontario after 2002/2003 may have affected participation rates at certain ages.
LFS estimates for Canada are derived using results from the provinces; the territories are excluded.
Caution should be exercised in interpreting these ratios and differences in ratios between ages 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.
