A key objective of the revised National Occupation Classification (NOC) developed in 2011 was to harmonize the coding structures and to eliminate all other differences between the NOC of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada 2006, and Statistics Canada’s NOC for Statistics 2006. Due to this structural realignment, occupational data for years 2006 and 2016 are not directly comparable. As a result, comparisons between 2016 and 2006 are limited to the “Population 15 years and over" only.

*Disclaimer on Census material:

Due to a different methodology used to impute on reserve dwellings in the voluntary 2011 National Household Survey, Statistics Canada recommends the use of 2006 as a point of reference when making historical comparisons.

First Nations whose affiliated Indian reserves (or equivalent census subdivisions) opted not to participate in the Census have no data available, and First Nations whose affiliated communities totalled less than 40 individuals are suppressed by Statistics Canada. Furthermore, the affiliated census subdivisions may be subject to varying degrees of undercoverage measured by Data Quality indices. In 2006, information for individual communities with global non-response (GNR) rates of 25% or higher were automatically suppressed by Statistics Canada. In 2016, Statistics Canada lowered the threshold so that individual communities with GNR rates of 50% or higher were suppressed from their 2016 standard products. It is important to note, however, that data for an entire First Nation may or may not be suppressed depending on the overall GNR rate.

Different thresholds are applied to income. At the individual level, all income data for First Nations whose affiliated communities totalled less than 250 persons are suppressed. At the household level, suppression was applied to First Nations whose affiliated communities totalled less than 250 individuals or 40 households.

The socio-economic indicators presented on this page are derived from special tabulations prepared for ISC by Statistics Canada from the 2006 and 2016 Censuses of Population. All of the information provided here is believed to be accurate and valid in the context of Statistics Canada's mandate to collect and disseminate census information on all Canadians as specified in the Statistics Act. ISC does not warrant these data or accept responsibility for any omissions or inaccuracies inadvertently contained in this presentation.

Procedures are applied to prevent the possibility of associating statistical data with any identifiable individual: the data are randomly rounded and they are suppressed for certain geographic areas. Random rounding is a method whereby all figures in a tabulation including totals are randomly rounded (either up or down) to a multiple of 5 and in some cases 10. This technique provides strong protection against direct residual or negative disclosure without adding significant error to the census data. Minor differences can be expected in corresponding totals and cell values among census tabulations. Small cell counts may suffer a significant distortion as a result of random rounding.
