Category: Demographics
Group Name: Ward Profile 2011
Data Steward: Statistics Canada, 2011 National Household Survey; Community Data Program
Data Custodian: Service Innovation, Information & Technology Department, Information Management Division, Peel Data Centre
Data Currency Comments: Data collected in 2011. Data by Ward reflects 2014-2018 Ward Boundaries
Frequency: Data is collected every 5 years and released in subsequent years
Data Accuracy Comments: In 2011 the voluntary National Household Survey (NHS) replaced the mandatory Census Long Form. Generally speaking, the 2011 NHS data is less comparable to that of previous census periods due to non-response bias inherent in voluntary surveys. The risk of a voluntary survey is that the results may only reflect the kinds of individuals who are inclined to participate in a survey in the first place. Furthermore, as the NHS User Guide notes: "Caution must be exercised when NHS estimates are compared with estimates produced from the 2006 Census long form, especially when the analysis involves small geographies.” It is recommended that users make use of the NHS's main quality indicator, the global non-response rate (GNR), in assessing the quality of the NHS estimates. For more information, please see the National Household Survey User Guide Catalogue No. 99-001-x2011001. Numbers may not add up due to rounding
