In summary, the population estimates for the health regions in this publication were prepared as follows. First, the 2006 population estimates were based on the 2006 Census, adjusted for net under coverage. Secondly, for non-census years, the Census-based population estimates were adjusted for changes in the population, primarily using administrative data. Lastly, subprovincial/subterritorial population estimates were controlled to sum to the population estimates at the provincial/territorial level prepared by Statistics Canada.
