|Note: Questions pertaining to education on the Census of Population questionnaire changed substantially between 2001 and 2006, principally to reflect developments in Canada's education system. These changes improved the quality of data collected by the census but mean that comparisons with data from previous censuses must be limited. Data for the two census years are compared for two groups: persons without a university degree and persons with a university degree (bachelor and above). |
