Census 1991: Geographic Files - Geographic Attribute File

  • The files are self-expanding (file extension .EXE)
  • The 1991 Geographic Attribute File (formerly called the Geography Tape File) is a computer file which contains one record for each 1991 enumeration area (EA). This file is derived from the 1991 Geographic Attribute Data Base (a set of internal Statistics Canada files). Each EA record is listed along with the codes and names of all higher level standard geographic areas. The 1991 version includes the net 1991 census subdivision land area.
