Description
  • Abstract

    The Public Use Sample is a representative sample of individual records from the 1971 Census of Canada Master File. The primary sample size is one-in-one-hundred and the sample is self-weighting. Data from the long-form questionnaire, or one-third sample, were used to create these microdata files. To preserve confidentiality, respondents were selected from nine provinces and two Census Metropolitan Areas (CMA) with populations of 250,000 or more. The provinces are Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. The CMAs are Montreal and Toronto. There are six data files in this collection. For each of the two geographic categories, province and CMA, there are three data files organized by record type: Household, Family, and Individual. Parts 1 and 2, the Household Files, contain the age, sex, birthplace, marital status, educational attainment, income, occupation, and employment status of the household head, as well as the number of people living in the household. There is also information on the physical housing characteristics, such as number of rooms and bedrooms, type of cooking and heating fuel used, and rent and/or mortgage amounts. Parts 3 and 4, the Family Files, contain the age, race, language, migration status, religion, educational attainment, employment, income, and occupation of the household head and wife, and number and ages of children in school or not in school. Parts 5 and 6, the Individual Files, contain detailed information on the household residents including age, sex, birthplace, marital status, educational attainment, residential history, income, occupation, and employment status. These two files also contain some information on housing characteristics.
