The Nation is the first series to release basic data from the 1996 Census,
providing national coverage. This series covers characteristics of the population,
including demographic, social, cultural, labour force and income variables as well
as details on dwellings, households and families. Generally the data are presented
for Canada, Provinces, Territories and Census Metropolitan Areas. Some tables include
comparisons with data from earlier censuses.
Information identified as archived is provided for reference, research or recordkeeping purposes. It is not subject to the Government of Canada Web Standards and has not been altered or updated since it was archived. Please "contact us" to request a format other than those available.
These selected data tables from the Nation Series will be available at this
location on the day of release of each variable.
Additional data are available in the Canadian Statistics area of our site
