  • Geographic files and documentation: 12-571-P
    Description:

    The Standard Geographical Classification (SGC) is a system of names and codes representing areas of Canada. It consists of a three-tiered hierarchy - province or territory, census division, and census subdivision. This relationship is reflected in the seven-digit code. The SGC is used to identify information for particular geographical areas and to tabulate statistics. This volume is designed as a reference and coding manual. It contains tables of SGC units with their names and codes, as well as tables of metropolitan areas. This preliminary version of Volume I will be followed in January 2007 by the final version.

    Description:

    This article explains how to append census area-level summary data to survey or administrative data. It uses examples from datasets present in Statistics Canada Research Data Centres, but the methods also apply to external datasets. Four examples illustrate common situations faced by researchers: (1) when the survey (or administrative) and census data both contain the same level of geographic identifiers, coded to the same year standard ("vintage") of census geography; (2) when the two files contain geographic identifiers of the same vintage, but at different levels of census geography; (3) when the two files contain data coded to different vintages of census geography; (4) when the survey data are lacking in geographic identifiers, and those identifiers must first be generated from postal codes present on the file. The examples are shown using SAS syntax, but the principles apply to other programming languages or statistical packages.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada has developed the 2006 Census Teacher's Kit for use in elementary, intermediate, secondary and adult classes across the country. Students play an important role as future respondents to the census. Some students may help parents complete their household's questionnaire if their language skills in English or French are stronger than those of the parents.

    The Teacher's Kit contains eight teacher-ready activities as well as a guide to provide:

    - an explanation of why Canada conducts a census and how census results benefit society

    - an introduction to census data as an information source for school papers and projects - an alternative approach to studying math, geography, English, French and social sciences

    The activities have been prepared with the help of a professional educator and have been classroom tested in English and French for suitable content and grade level. They are appropriate for English, math, theatre arts, art, social sciences, geography, history, family studies and physical education. Suggested grade levels are indicated on each activity and all necessary tables, charts, graphs and data are included. A teacher requires one kit; photocopying is required for student handout sheets.

Part I contains a description of each survey at Statistics Canada that has transportation related information. Each survey is listed with the survey name, a person to contact, phone number and fax number, a brief description of the transportation related information in the survey, the periodicity of the survey and the publication catalogue number, name and price where the information can be found.
