Census Tract Correspondence Files 1976-1981. 1981-1986, 1986-1991

I am looking for CT correspondence files between the 1976 and 1981 censuses, 1981 and 1986 censuses, and 1986 and 1991 censuses.  Would anyone have those?

Have you checked out:

  • Taylor, Zack; Allen, Jeff, 2018, "Canadian Longitudinal Tract Database", https://doi.org/10.5683/SP/EUG3DT, Scholars Portal Dataverse, V2, UNF:6:ZGi846/Su7dwN76j8+3oaA==
  • MDL UofT might also have some other CT correspondence files (directly from STC)
  • In the GeoPortal, we brought together known to exist CT correspondence files and packaged them up with the census boundary files
    • 1986 Census Tracts http://geo.scholarsportal.info/#r/details/_uri@=79302640$DLI_1986_Census_CBF_Eng_Nat_ct click “ADD” to view and then download all to get full data download with “data/correspondence files/” for 1986-1981 and 1986-1991

You can check out other years in the portal as well, everything is open. When there is more time we will try to update these with newer correspondence files as we receive them.

Please see below for the Equivalent Enumeration Areas:

  • Equivalent Enumeration Areas, 1981 and 1976 [http://www.publications.gc.ca/site/eng/9.838892/publication.html]
  • Equivalent Enumeration Areas, 1986 and 1981 [http://www.publications.gc.ca/site/eng/9.588861/publication.html]
  • Equivalent Enumeration Areas, 1991 and 1986 [http://www.publications.gc.ca/site/eng/9.519828/publication.html]
the format of Equivalent Enumeration Areas, 1991 and 1986 is “paper”, which is why it is not available online.
