Canada - Census

NOTE: Announced in July 2010, Statistics Canada will eliminate the long-from census for the 2011.

The long census questionnaire provided information on a broad range on such topics as ethnicity, education, employment, income, housing and disability. Those questions will be asked on a new, voluntary National Household Survey and the results will not be released.
