1996 Population (Ecumene) Census Data, Canada

The parts of Canada making up the 1996 Settled Area, (or Population Ecumene), represents a selection of the 5984 Census Subdivisions (CSD) as defined by Statistics Canada for the 1996 Census. The selection process essentially removes those CSDs with very large areas and/or very low populations. Some of British Columbia's CSD boundaries have been further modified to better conform to the distinctive settlement patterns in the Cordilleran regions. The 1996 Settled Area is an attempt to balance the needs of national scale choropleth mapping with the spatial reality that the majority of Canada's land area contains very few people. The Settled Area represents more than 98% of the Canadian population captured in the 1996 Census of Canada.
