DA level tables on Aboriginal Identity and Gender for the 2006 Census

Question

I was surprised not to find Dissemination Area level tables on Aboriginal identity groups and Gender (women) for the 2006 Census. Would I be missing something? If not, may I inquire how long a custom tabulation would take and whether there is interest in the DLI for a group purchase? We are interested in Winnipeg at the very least. One of our researchers is looking at worsening homelessness for Winnipeg and has a DA-level table from the 2011 NHS.

Answer

Try consulting the cumulative profile of the 2006 Census at the DA level:

Variables at the DA level include Aboriginal identity population

Item Code: 565

Default Label: Total Aboriginal identity population

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notes:

FOOTNOTE:

Included in the Aboriginal identity population are those persons who reported identifying with at least one Aboriginal group, that is, North American Indian, M├ętis or Inuit, and/or those who reported being a Treaty Indian or a Registered Indian, as defined by the Indian Act of Canada, and/or those who reported they were members of an Indian band or First Nation.

There is also the female and male population in the profile.
