Description

(StatCan Product) Children aged 0 to 12 in Census Families in which mother is employed by age for Alberta, Edmonton CMA, Calgary CMA and Alberta Health Regions (2006 Census) "Customization details   This information product has been customized to present information on children aged 0 to 12 for which their mother is employed for Alberta, Edmonton CMA, Calgary CMA and the Alberta Health Regions (2006 Census).   Age breakdown:Total – Aged 0 to 12 Under 1 year 1 year 2 years 3 years 4 years 5 years 6 years 7 years 8 years 9 years 10 years 11 years 12 years Notes: “Children” and “Mothers” are defined in this table according to 2006 Census Family Concepts. Only one change was brought to the Census Family Concept since 2001: In 2006, a married couple may be of opposite or same sex.   However, only certain children are included, based on the age of the child and characteristics of the Mother. (See the definition of children below – the children concept is not defined by age, but by the relationship to other members of the household.)   A Mother is defined, for the purposes of this table, as a Female Lone Parent, a Female Spouse/Opposite Sex Common-law partner (in a Census family that contains children), or in the case of a Same-Sex Female partnership or marriage (in a Census family that contains children), the second female partner who is listed on the questionnaire. The “Mother” may be a grandmother who is living with a grandchild, if the parents are not present.   Note that only those children Aged 0 to 12 whose mothers (as defined above) were employed the week prior to Census day are included in this table.     A Census Family refers to a married couple (with or without children of either or both spouses) of opposite or same sex, a couple living common-law (with or without children of either or both partners) or a lone parent of any marital status, with at least one child living in the same dwelling. A couple living common-law may be of opposite or same sex. “Children” in a census family include grandchildren living with their grandparent(s) but with no parents present.   Children refer to blood, step- or adopted sons and daughters (regardless of age or marital status) who are living in the same dwelling as their parent(s), as well as grandchildren in households where there are no parents present. Sons and daughters who are living with their spouse or common-law partner, or with one or more of their own children, are not considered to be members of the census family of their parent(s), even if they are living in the same dwelling. In addition, the sons or daughters who do not live in the same dwelling as their parent(s) are not considered members of the census family of their parent(s). When sons or daughters study or have a summer job elsewhere but return to live with their parent(s) during the year, these sons and daughters are considered members of the census family of their parent(s).   For the 2001 Census, several changes were made to the census family concept: –  Two persons living in a same-sex common-law relationship, along with any of their children residing in the household, will be considered a census family.       –  Children in a census family can have been previously married (as long as they are not currently living with a spouse or common-law partner). Previously, they had to be ""never-married"".       –  A grandchild living in a three-generation household where the parent (middle generation) is never-married will, contrary to previous censuses, now be considered as a child in the census family of his or her parent, provided the grandchild is not living with his or her own spouse, common-law partner, or child. Traditionally, the census family usually consisted of the two older generations.       –  A grandchild of another household member, where a middle-generation parent is not present, will now be considered as a child in the census family of his or her grandparent, provided the grandchild is not living with his or her own spouse, common-law partner, or child. Traditionally, such a grandchild would not be considered as the member of a census family.   For the 2006 Census, an additional change was made to the census family concept:   –  Two persons living in a same-sex marriage, along with any of their children residing in the household, will be considered a census family.    Overview of the 2006 Census of Population
