Census and National Household Survey (NHS)

The Census and the National Household Survey (NHS) do not provide statistics on the health status of the population. However, the surveys help to create a profile of the population based on questions concerning housing, the family, immigration, the Aboriginal peoples, level of education, work, mobility and migration, working language and income. The statistics are available at several geographic levels and the aggregate statistics are available free of charge on the Statistics Canada website (Statistics Canada, 2017).
