*Disclaimer on Census Material:

First Nations whose affiliated Indian reserves (or equivalents) 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 (CSDs) may be subject to varying degrees of undercoverage measured by Data Quality indices ranging from higher than or equal to 5% but lower than 10%; higher than or equal to 10% but lower than 25%; or higher than or equal to 25%. While information for individual communities with global non-response rates of 25% or higher are automatically suppressed by Statistics Canada, the information for the entire First Nation may or may not be suppressed depending on the overall 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 AANDC by Statistics Canada from the 2001 and 2006 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. AANDC 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.
