Census of Canada, 1986: Basic summary tabulations

The census basic summary tabulations (BSTs) are a series of tabulations, each of which features two or more interrelated variables. Each table deals with a specific characteristic of the Canadian population either as individuals or in their family or household relations, or with a characteristic of Canadian dwellings. All variables covered in the 1986 census are represented in the BST program. The number of classifications provided for each variable within a table is noted in parentheses in the table titles.

All census BSTs are designed so that the same data are available for standard geographic areas extending from the country as a whole to enumeration areas.

Note: all STC edition record layouts are PDF format.
