Note:
  1. Work at home can be measured in different ways. Other Statistics Canada surveys also collect data on people working at home. However, the data from these surveys are not directly comparable to those from the census because in the surveys, respondents must indicate whether they do some or all of their paid work at home, whereas in the census, they have to indicate where they usually work most of the time.
