Population by Language


I've received a request from a prof here at the U of S for population data for the NWT that's broken down by age and language(s). That is, how many in each age group speak English or French or both? For simplicity's sake, he's not looking at non-official languages. We've found population by age group; and we've found language data, but not categorized by age.


The following topic based tabulation from the 2006 Census may meet your user's needs. If you go to the Download tab, you can download the table and work with it in Beyond 20/20 to display the data for all of the age ranges.

Knowledge of Official Languages (5), Number of Non-official Languages Known (5), Age Groups (17A) and Sex (3) for the Population of Canada, Provinces, Territories, Census Metropolitan Areas and Census Agglomerations, 2006 Census - 20% Sample Data (97-555-XCB2006009),97154&S=0&SHOWALL=0&SUB=704&Temporal=2006&THEME=70&VID=0&VNAMEE=&VNAMEF=

The user may also be interested in the other 2006 Census language related topic-based tabulations that are available under:,97154&S=0&SHOWALL=0&SUB=0&Temporal=2006&THEME=70&VID=0&VNAMEE=&VNAMEF=

Should these not meet the user's needs, please don't hesitate to let me know and I will be happy to locate other products.
