Correspondence Files

Three correspondence files are available:

  • The Dissemination Area correspondence file is a tabular product that describes the relationship between the 2006 Dissemination Area and the 2001 Dissemination Area;
  • The Dissemination Area and Land Area Correspondence File describes the percentage of the 2006 Dissemination Area's land area within the boundaries of the 2001 Dissemination Area;
  • The Dissemination Block correspondence file describes the relationship between the 2006 Dissemination Block and the 2001 Dissemination Block.

Each file contains a unique identifier for the current census geographic area and the corresponding unique identifier for the previous census geographic area. In addition, a relationship flag is included which indicates the degree of correspondence between the geographic areas, facilitating the comparison between census years.

A reference guide is available for the 2006 correspondence files (92-156-GWE).
