Access Requirements / Limits
The Census data is accessible to McGill users and Quebec Universities members of CREPUQ only.
The Dimensions Series (1996 Census of Population) provides an in-depth analysis of census data. More than 150 tables represent a variety of special interest subjects linking a number of Census variables. Statistical information is presented on themes of considerable public interest with some tables examining historical trends and other tables detailing significant sub-populations. Data for geographical levels of Canada, Provinces and Territories are most widely represented with some data tables produced at the Census Metropolitan Area level. The Portrait of Official Language Communities in Canada and the Portrait of Aboriginal Population of Canada contain some information at the community level. 

The Dimensions Series data tables are grouped by common theme and are extracted from 7 different CD-ROMs:

  • Ethnocultural and Social Characteristics of the Canadian Population 
  • Canadian Income and Earnings for 1990 and 1995
  • Labour Force and Unpaid Work of Canadians 
  • Place of Work of the Canadian Population
  • Canadian Demographic Characteristics (including language and mobility)
  • Portrait of Official Language Communities in Canada
  • Portrait of Aboriginal Population in Canada
