OTTAWA, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Canadians will learn much more about their country next week as Statistics Canada releases the first data from the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS).
The results will be released at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time on May 8, 2013, on Statistics Canada's website (www.statcan.gc.ca).
The NHS was the largest survey ever conducted by Statistics Canada, with some 4.5 million households invited to take part. The voluntary survey included questions on such topics as place of birth, citizenship and immigration, ethnic origin, Aboriginal identity, language of work, education, labour market activity, income and housing.
The release on May 8 focuses on Aboriginal Peoples and Immigration and ethnocultural diversity. This release features two analytical reports.
- The first report will provide a profile of the total Aboriginal population, and each of the Aboriginal groups: First Nations people, Métis and Inuit. It will examine where Aboriginal people live and their age structure. The report will also look at the living arrangements of Aboriginal children.
- The second report will provide a statistical portrait of immigrants and ethnocultural diversity. It will examine the size and geographic distribution of foreign-born people in Canada and particularly of those who arrived between 2006 and 2011, as well as their countries of birth and knowledge of official and non-official languages. The report will also present the ethnocultural origins of the Canadian population, as well as data on visible minority status and religious affiliation.
Three companion reports will also be available. They will analyze the linguistic characteristics of the Aboriginal population, the demographic characteristics of individuals who are second-generation Canadians, and the characteristics of immigrants who hold Canadian citizenship.
All reports and data products pertaining to the release will be available on our website at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time on May 8.
Statistics Canada's experts in these areas will be available for interviews, which may be arranged in advance by calling our Media Hotline at 613-951-4636.
