Usage Considerations

Data in this report have been specially tabulated from Statistics Canada's 2016 Census of Canada, by allocation of Statistics Canada block face reference points to PEDs. Located within the boundaries of PED 51 (Bonnyville-Cold Lake St. Paul) is the Indian reserve of Saddle Lake 125. Saddle Lake 125 was incompletely enumerated in the 2016 Census. Data are not available for this area, and thus are not included in the profile of that PED or of the province of Alberta. The global non-response rate (GNR) for Alberta is 4.7%. The GNR combines both complete non-response (household) and partial non-response (question) into a single rate. The GNR is an indicator of data quality, where a smaller GNR suggests more accuracy. When the GNR is 50% or above, the data are suppressed. The GNR is identified for each region. A higher GNR indicates the need for user caution. We strongly recommend that users refer to the appropriate related documents.
