Illustrated Glossary


The Illustrated Glossary is a tool that can help users take full advantage of census data, by providing an understanding of the terms related to geographic concepts, infrastructure, products and services. Geography is important to the national statistical system. Well-defined geographic areas provide the framework for the collection, presentation and analysis of data. Visitors to the Geography site can access the illustrated glossary which presents geographic concepts, products and services, as well as links to online tutorials and detailed definitions. To view the glossary, go to the Census Geography area on the Statistics Canada website.
