Metropolitan area concepts in Canada and selected foreign countries / by Raymond Dubuisson = Concepts de région métropolitaine au Canada et dans certains pays étrangers / par Raymond Dubuisson.: CS99-973/1983-PDF ; CS92-X-503/1983-PDF

"The Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) and Census Agglomeration (CA) concepts are becoming increasingly important in the Canadian census due to (a) the large proportion of Canada's population living in the areas so defined (almost 70 % in the 1981 Census), and (b) their uses by several divisions of Statistics Canada and by other agencies as a spatial frame of reference for the publication of statistical data. In view of the growing importance of these two concepts, the Geography Division revises them at almost every census. That is sufficient reason for the preparation of this paper, whose purpose is twofold: first, to examine how the two concepts are used at Statistics Canada, and second, to compare Statistics Canada's definitions of and delineation criteria for Census Agglomerations and Census Metropolitan Areas with those of selected foreign countries."--Intro.
