  2. 2. Reason for a Census“under the modern system, it is nothing less than a great periodical stocktaking of the people and of their affairs, designed to show from the widest possible angle the state that has been reached in the general progress of the nation” (Dominion Bureau of Statistics, 1924:xi). “Fundamentally the importance of the census hinges upon itsenumeration and analysis of the human element or man – power of the country – the people themselves – the basic asset of every state.” (Dominion Bureau of Statistics, 1924:xii).
  3. 3. RepresentationThe immediate raison d‟être of the census is to determine representation in the House of Commons.
  4. 4. Nations Navigation SystemThus the Census rounds out and completed the scheme of information by which as by a chart the government directs the affairs of the nations. Without the census, it would be literal truth to say that legislation and administration would be carried on in the dark – thatthere would be no means of knowing whether the country was on the road to success or disaster, or whatconstituted the norm or standard of its progress in almost any particular.” (Dominion Bureau of Statistics, 1924:xii).

  8. 8. DefinitionA census is the procedure of systematically acquiring and recording information about the members of a givenpopulation. It is a regularly occurring and official count of a particular population. The United Nations defines the essential features of population and housing censuses as "individual enumeration, universality within a defined territory, simultaneity and defined periodicity". The census can be contrasted with sampling in whichinformation is obtained only from a subset of a population, sometimes as an Intercensal estimate.

  35. 35. 2011!!! 140 years later: The Census gets short, Harper‟s Government scraps the long-form censusand relegates it to a survey, but due to legal pressure adds 2 question on language, Canadiansexperience a summer of government censuslessness and hear that “Most like it long”. There is national and international outcry to save it.
  36. 36. National Statistics Council of Canada “The proposed, voluntary National Household Survey will suffer from significant respondentself-selection bias. Even with substantial efforts to mitigate the inevitable decline in response rates, this will degrade the data upon which much of the Canadian statistical system is based.”
  37. 37. Statistics Council cntd.likely result in Statistics Canada‟s not being able to publish robust, detailed information for neighbourhoods, towns or rural areas. Much ofthe analytic work done by municipalities, private firms, health agencies, highway andtransportation planners, school boards and large numbers of other groups that depend uponsmall-area knowledge and data will no longer be possible.
  38. 38. Statistics Council cntd.“The potential loss of vital benchmark information. The mandatory „long form‟ means that Statistics Canada has an accurate benchmark for the demographics of populations who are difficult toreach or who are less likely to complete a voluntary survey. This, in turn, means that sampling and weighting strategies for subsequent, voluntary surveys can compensate for differential response rates and produce more reliable information.”
  39. 39. Other data options?- no other options- Admin. data are inadequate & not comparable- Micro scale analysis not available – sub municipal not possible- SAAD – taxfiler for income but only by postal code, unsuitable for rural areas- Private sector will only focus on where there is a market – think telcos & universal connectivity

  44. 44. Languages “the language spoken by the people of a country has a distinct bearing upon its problems of nationality and assimilation. With the exception of religion, no individual right or heritage is more highly prized or more jealously guarded” (Dominion Bureau of Statistics, 1936:46). 2011 - Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne du Canada asked the Federal Court to overturn the government‟s decision on the grounds that it violates the rights of Francophones under the Official Languages Act by compromising data on minority populations that are used to guide services for French-speaking communities.
  45. 45. Agriculture The Agriculture Census remains incredibly long and mandatory. Some suggest we will know more about cubic meters of rural manure than we will know about urban populations.
