Refers to the Statistical Area Classification (SAC) where the person usually resided on May 16, 2001, five years prior to Census Day. The SAC groups census subdivisions (CSD) according to whether they are a component of a census metropolitan area (CMA), a tracted or non-tracted census agglomeration (CA), a census metropolitan area or a census agglomeration influenced zone (MIZ) or one of the territories (Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and Nunavut). Previously, CSDs were classified into either CMA/CA or non-CMA/CA areas of Canada. This concept applies to the Mobility status (5 years ago) subuniverse only.
