Topic-based tabulations are cross-tabulated tables that give an in-depth look at selected census variables at various levels of geography, including census subdivisions (CSDs), census divisions (CDs)*, provinces/territories, and Canada. The tables are available in various categories, including labour.
Note: There are topic-based tabulations for the National Household Survey (NHS) as well, but they are called 2011 National Household Survey: Data tables.
*In BC, census divisions = regional districts.
Important: When selecting a table of interest, be sure to differentiate between CSDs and CAs. The CSD of Prince George (318 sq. km) is the City of Prince George; the CA of Prince George (17,686 sq. km) includes the CSD of Prince George and several neighbouring CSDs.
