A student here would like to be able to use the statistics underlying the historical age pyramid at https://www12.statcan.gc.ca/census-recensement/2011/dp-pd/pyramid-pyramide/his/index-eng.cfm. Specifically, he would like to have population by single years of age by gender for each year (1921 through 2011).
I found Age Groups (13) and Sex (3) for the population of Canada, Provinces and Territories, 1921 to 2011 Census (http://www12.statcan.gc.ca/census-recensement/2011/dp-pd/tbt-tt/Rp-eng.cfm?LANG=E&APATH=3&DETAIL=0&DIM=0&FL=A&FREE=0&GC=0&GID=0&GK=0&GRP=1&PID=102186&PRID=0&PTYPE=101955&S=0&SHOWALL=0&SUB=0&Temporal=2011&THEME=88&VID=0&VNAMEE=&VNAMEF=), but suspect that he wants the individual years of age rather age groups.
Are these time series available, or would requesting them require a special tabulation?
I have been unable to find the time series for individual years dating back to 1921. These series seem to be available for age groups.
For individual years I found online:
Topic-based tabulation: Age (131) and Sex (3) for the Population of Canada, Provinces, Territories, Census Metropolitan Areas and Census Agglomerations, 2006 and 2011 Censuses
Age (123) and Sex (3) for Population, for Canada, Provinces, Territories, Census Metropolitan Areas and Census Agglomerations, 1996 and 2001 Censuses - 100% Data - Cat. No. 97F0003XCB2001001.
Others for age for 2001 census
If they were to obtain a custom tabulation from the Regional offices, they would however only be able to get tables as far back as 1971.
