Description:

This dataset contains two types of data associated with Teeter et al. (2018) Global Biogeochemical Cycles. The first type consists of the necessary files to replicate our model setup and experiments: input and output files, setup files, and some model code. The second type consists of model output, both raw and derived variables, for each model run used in the paper. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.18357/Hamme.2018.data01

Description:

The Skeletal Road Network Files (SRNFs) are disseminated to provide geographic reference information for the 2001 Census data. They can be used to reference the boundaries of the geographic areas by which Census data are tabulated.

The Skeletal Road Network File contains selected roads (with road names, but no addresses) that are derived from the Road Network Files (Catalogue No. 92F0157XCE). The selected roads are ranked according to four levels of detail. The different levels of detail are suitable for mapping at small to medium scales. The Skeletal Road Network Files can be used to provide some roads for cartographic reference when producing thematic maps with the Cartographic Boundary Files. The positional accuracy of the Skeletal Road Network File does not support cadastral, surveying or engineering applications.

Skeletal Road Network Files provide full digital coverage for Canada. There are 59 standard Skeletal Road Network Files:

  • Canada
  • 10 Provinces and 2 territories
  • 27 census metropolitan areas
  • 19 census agglomerations with census tracts
To order these files, please consult the Census Geography Filename page (below) and contact Data Services. Important note for Arcinfo users When converting the .e00 files to Arcinfo shape coverages, please remove the underscores in the .e00 files (ie, rename them), as the conversion program will not work with underscores. For more information on converting .e00 interchange format files to Arcinfo format, see the ESRI knowledge base.

The original files for this census were the Esri .e00 interchange format files and the Mapinfo format files.

Shapefile and geojson format files suitable for use with newer technology were created using GDAL: http://www.gdal.org/

Specifically, files were converted from Mapinfo: ogr2ogr -f {fileformat} {mif or tab input file} {output file}

Note that some lengthy field names may be truncated.

If you wish to use the original files provided by Statistics Canada, please use either .e00 format or Mapinfo format.

Description:

The Road Network Files (RNFs) are disseminated to provide geographic reference information for the 2001 Census data. They can be used to reference the boundaries of the geographic areas by which Census data are tabulated or to request retrievals of census data by user defined geographic areas.

Road Network Files contain a road layer for the entire country and a province/territory boundary layer. The road layer includes roads, with road names and address ranges (arc attributes), and geographic codes to identify blocks, census subdivisions, census metropolitan areas/census agglomerations, and provinces/territories (polygon attributes). Address ranges are mainly available in the large urban centres of Canada. The province/territory boundary layer incorporates hydrography (the shoreline around Canada and the inland lakes and waterways) with the boundaries and the geographic codes.

Roads in the Road Network Files are ranked at five levels of detail. This allows the users to select different subsets of roads for mapping purposes. Road Network Files provide full digital coverage for Canada. There are 60 standard Road Network Files:

  • Canada
  • 10 Provinces and 3 territories
  • 27 census metropolitan areas
  • 19 census agglomerations with census tracts

Description:

The 2001 Census Forward Sortation Area (FSA) Boundary File contains the boundaries of 1,577 forward sortation areas (the first three characters of a postal code) derived from postal codes captured from the 2001 Census of Population questionnaires. Through analysis of the postal codes reported by Census households, a single Forward Sortation Area was assigned to each reported block based on the most frequently reported Forward Sortation Area for the block. Unreported blocks were assigned a Forward Sortation Area based on proximity to reported blocks in the same province or territory.

The product consists of two separate layers:

  • a boundary file whose extents are those of the National Geographic Base, and
  • a cartographic boundary file which incorporates hydrography (the shoreline around Canada) with the Forward Sortation Area boundaries.

The co-ordinates are in latitude/longitude and are based on the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83).

Description:

This product contains three layers of information: the ecumene boundary layer, the census division boundary layer and the province/territory boundary layer.

The ecumene boundary layer consists of a polygon layer. Polygons in the layer are classified as being part of the landmass or as water. Land polygons contain attributes classifying them as part of the ecumene or as part of the sparsely populated areas not assigned to the ecumene. Every census division contains at least one ecumene polygon. Each polygon has the census division unique identifier code (CDuid), as an attribute along with data such as the 2001 Census population, population density per square kilometre and the percentage change in population between the 1996 and 2001 Censuses.

Description:

Cartographic Boundary Files are a series of products containing the boundaries of standard geographic areas together with the shoreline around Canada. A separate file will be provided with large inland lakes and double line rivers. The lakes and shorelines will hereafter be referred to as hydrography. The coordinates are latitude / longitude and are based on the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83). The Cartographic Boundary Files for 2001 replace the Digital Cartographic Files produced for the 1996 Census.

Description:

The Block Digital Boundary File is disseminated to provide users with a standard national block file for geocoding custom areas or to request retrievals of census data by user-defined geographic areas. The Block Digital Boundary File is available at the block level only, but attributes for other levels of data are available for custom area creation. There is no hydrography associated with this file so boundaries will fall in water. Some representative points are known to fall into water. Further detail regarding representative point placement is explained in section 4, data quality.

Description:

LFS data are used to produce the well-known unemployment rate as well as other standard labour market indicators such as the employment rate and the participation rate. The LFS also provides employment estimates by industry, occupation, public and private sector, hours worked and much more, all cross-classifiable by a variety of demographic characteristics. Estimates are produced for Canada, the provinces, the territories and a large number of sub-provincial regions. For employees, data on wage rates, union status, job permanency and establishment size are also produced.

These data are used by different levels of government for evaluation and planning of employment programs in Canada. Regional unemployment rates are used by Employment and Social Development Canada to determine eligibility, level and duration of insurance benefits for persons living within a particular employment insurance region. The data are also used by labour market analysts, economists, consultants, planners, forecasters and academics in both the private and public sector.
