Footnote 1

The current breakdown was created using two variables, that is, the 'Place of work census division' variable for those who work at a usual place or at home and for whom a specific location (in these cases a Census Division) can be determined, and the 'Place of work status' variable for those with no fixed workplace address or those working outside Canada and for whom no census division can be allocated.

Footnote 3

For the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) estimates, the global non-response rate (GNR) is used as an indicator of data quality. This indicator combines complete non-response (household) and partial non-response (question) into a single rate. The value of the GNR is presented to users. A smaller GNR indicates a lower risk of non-response bias and as a result, lower risk of inaccuracy. The threshold used for estimates' suppression is a GNR of 50% or more. For more information, please refer to the National Household Survey User Guide, 2011.
