Census subdivision - previous census

Definition

'Census subdivision – previous census' refers to the census subdivisions (CSDs) as of January 1, 2016, (the geographic reference date for the 2016 Census). A "best fit" linkage is established between dissemination blocks for the 2021 Census and CSDs (municipalities) for the 2016 Census. This linkage ensures that data from the current census can be tabulated for the CSDs from the previous census.
