Note

This table contains information from the 2001 Census, presented according to the Statistical Area Classification (SAC). The SAC groups census subdivisions according to whether they are a component of a census metropolitan area, a census agglomeration, a census metropolitan area and census agglomeration influenced zone (strong MIZ, moderate MIZ, weak MIZ or no MIZ) or of the territories (Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon Territory). The table also presents the rural/urban classification, according to the SAC. The classification of urban and rural areas is based on the census geographical structure and terminology. The SAC is used for data dissemination purposes.

Data characteristics presented according to the SAC include age, visible minority groups, immigration, mother tongue, education, income, work and dwellings. Data are presented for Canada, Provinces and Territories.

Some of the geographic levels presented in this table exclude census data for one or more incompletely enumerated Indian reserves or Indian settlements. This is identified by the five-digit data quality code presented with the geographic name. For some of the variables presented in this table, it was possible to identify the variable where the census data were excluded. The geographic levels and variables that exclude census data for one or more incompletely enumerated Indian reserves or Indian settlements are shown below.

Canada - Within CMA, Within CA with census tracts, Within CA without census tracts, CMA/CA Influenced Zones (Weakly Influenced, Not Influenced).

Quebec - Within CMA, CMA/CA Influenced Zones (Not Influenced).

Ontario - Within CA with census tracts, CMA/CA Influenced Zones (Weakly Influenced, Not Influenced).

Manitoba - Within CA without census tracts.

Saskatchewan - CMA/CA Influenced Zones (Not Influenced).

Alberta - CMA/CA Influenced Zones (Weakly Influenced, Not Influenced).

British Columbia - Within CMA, CMA/CA Influenced Zones (Not Influenced).

Special Note: Nunavut (1)

Data from the 2001 Census are available for Nunavut, the new territory that came into effect on April 1, 1999.

Standard data products released only at the Canada/Province/Territory geographic levels will not contain data for Nunavut for the census years prior to 2001.

Standard data products released at the Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) and Census Agglomeration (CA) geographic levels will contain data for Nunavut for the 2001, 1996 and/or 1991 Censuses.

The 1996 and 1991 CMA/CA data have been adjusted to reflect as closely as possible the 2001 CMA/CA geographic boundaries. This has been done to facilitate data comparisons using the 2001 geographic boundaries.

For additional information, please refer to the 2001 Census Dictionary, Catalogue Number 92-378-XIE or 92-378-XPE.

Special Note: Population Universe

The Population Universe of the 2001 Census includes the following groups:

- Canadian citizens (by birth or by naturalization) and landed immigrants with a usual place of residence in Canada;
- Canadian citizens (by birth or by naturalization) and landed immigrants who are abroad, either on a military base or attached to a diplomatic mission;
- Canadian citizens (by birth or by naturalization) and landed immigrants at sea or in port aboard merchant vessels under Canadian registry;
- persons with a usual place of residence in Canada who are claiming refugee status and members of their families living with them;
- persons with a usual place of residence in Canada who hold student authorizations (student visas or student permits) and members of their families living with them;
- persons with a usual place of residence in Canada who hold employment authorizations (or work permits) and members of their families living with them;
- persons with a usual place of residence in Canada who hold Minister's permits (including extensions) and members of their families living with them.

For census purposes, the last four groups in this list are referred to as 'non-permanent residents'. For further information, refer to the variable Immigration: Non-permanent Resident found in the 2001 Census Dictionary, Catalogue Number 92-378-XIE or 92-378-XPE.
