Respondents answered questions about place of work and commute according to their workplace as of the reference week, May 1st to 7th, 2011. For those who were not working during the reference week but who worked at some time during the period of January 1st, 2010 - May 1st, 2011, their responses relate to the longest job held during that time.
Gender breakdown is unavailable for some variables in certain areas due to data quality concerns.
The global non-response rate (GNR) is a weighted measure of survey non-response, calculated based on the number of households that did not respond to the survey and the number of questions that respondents left out. The GNR can be used as an indicator of data quality, with lower values indicating more accurate data. Geographies with a GNR of higher than 50% were suppressed by Statistics Canada due to concerns about data accuracy. If a geography has a GNR of 0, it means that there was a response from all households surveyed, not necessarily that the data is representative of all households in the geography.
a Respondents with 'no fixed working address' are those who work at a different location each day. This might include truck drivers, building contractors and traveling sales people.
b This variable includes respondents who report to the same workplace at the beginning of each shift.
c Questions regarding method and duration of transportation and time leaving for work were not asked to respondents who worked from home or worked outside Canada.
d This section is not available for areas that cannot be defined by postal code.
