Product Brief

At each Census, Collection Districts may be redesigned to accommodate growth in population or to conform to other administrative data. To assist users to compare data for Collection Districts which changed between the 1996 and 2006 Censuses, pairs of 1996 and 2006 Collection Districts have been assessed as either comparable or not comparable.
