Coefficients of Variation (CVs)

The CV of an estimate is the ratio of the standard error of the estimate and the estimate itself, expressed as a percentage. The CV is used to give an indication of the uncertainty associated with the estimates. Coefficients of variation are available for selected variables for Canada, provinces and territories.
