Census of Agriculture Response Rates


An Economics student has asked me where to find the response rates for the 1986, 1991, and 1996 Censuses of Agriculture. Is this published somewhere, and if so, where?

Thanks for your help.


Our Census of Agriculture contacts have looked into your question and have located the following sources and information:

Catalogue no. 96-102 Census Canada 1986 Agriculture page xv
In 1986 Census, the non-response rate amounted to less than 0.5 per cent

Catalogue no. 93-350 Agricultural Profile of Canada Census 1991 pt. 1 page xxi
A response rate of over 98% also contributed to its overall success.

Catalogue no. 93-356-XPB Agricultural Profile of Canada Census 1996 page xix
A response rate of almost 99% also contributed to the overall success of the 1996 Census of Agriculture.
