Does anyone know if Population density per square kilometre was produced and disseminated at the CT-level for 2001 and 1996 censuses? I’m finding 2006 and 2011 but not for these two earlier censuses in the Pop and Dwelling Counts files.
Subject matter has provided us with the following response:
“Population density is the number of persons per square kilometre. The calculation for population density is total population divided by land area. Land area is the area in square kilometres of the land-based portions of standard geographic areas. Land area data are unofficial and are provided for the sole purpose of calculating population density.http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/92-195-x/2011001/other-autre/pop/pop-eng.htm
