  1. LFS data are only available from 2001 for the Northwest Territories.
  2. LFS data are only available from 1992 for Yukon. They are suppressed for 1997/1998 to meet the confidentiality requirements of the Statistics Act.
  3. Labour Force Survey (LFS) estimates for Canada are derived using LFS results from the provinces; the territories are excluded.

Notes:  LFS data are only available from 2004 for Nunavut. They are suppressed for 2007/2008 to meet the confidentiality requirements of the Statistics Act. The number of students is based on a monthly average from September to April and includes full-time and part-time attendance. Caution should be exercised in interpreting the provincial ratios and differences in ratios between provinces and over time, as small estimates may present fairly high sampling variability.
