- TOTAL - INUIT AREA OF RESIDENCE
'Total - Inuit area of residence' refers to the following types of geographic areas: Inuit Nunaat (Inuit regions), urban census metropolitan area, urban non-census metropolitan area and rural area. These geographic areas can be used to show where the Inuit population is residing.
An urban area has a minimum population concentration of 1,000 persons and a population density of at least 400 persons per square kilometer, based on the current census population count. All territory outside urban areas is classified as rural.
A census metropolitan area (CMA) is a large urban area and has a population of at least 100,000.
Urban non-census metropolitan areas are smaller urban areas with a population of less than 100,000.
Rural areas include remote and wilderness areas and agricultural lands, as well as small towns, villages and other populated places with a population of less than 1,000.
Additional information on the geographic units can be obtained from the 2006 Census Dictionary.

- TOTAL ABORIGINAL IDENTITY POPULATION
Included in the Aboriginal identity population are those persons who reported identifying with at least one Aboriginal group, that is, North American Indian, Métis or Inuit, and/or those who reported being a Treaty Indian or a Registered Indian, as defined by the Indian Act of Canada, and/or those who reported they were members of an Indian band or First Nation.

- TOTAL - NUMBER OF PERSONS PER ROOM
This variable reflects the household level characteristic of the person.
