Notes:

  1. To ensure confidentiality, data from the census are independently random rounded. As a result, all numbers from the census end in the digit 0 or 5.
  2. Since 1986, all counts based on Revenue Canada Locality Code Statistics are independently rounded to the nearest 10. Total income and tax payable figures are rounded to thousands of dollars.
