Recent changes, bugs fixes and improvements
Please note, the following changes, bug fixes and improvements have been implemented:
- Recent changes:
- On select data tables, new vector-level footnotes are available that provide direct access to detailed, context-specific definitions and documentation.
- Ask us your question, a live agent will assist you.
- Selected new, unpopulated fields that appeared inside the .CSV metadata file components are removed and the correction flag fields reinstated. The full table download files for tables that have been affected will be corrected in a phased approach.
- Find information by region or area feature presents 2016 Census results for a requested geography.
- Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) are available for data tables.
- Two new API methods have been added to our suite of Web Data Service. These calls return a JSON list of metadata for all tables in our data repository and can also be executed without parameters.
- An improved metadata schema.org standard will be implemented and will result in improved findability of Statistics Canada data tables using external search engines.
