Population and agriculture : Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, 1916 : CS98-1916E-PDF

"Three schedules were used in collecting the data of population and agriculture. Schedule No. 1 was similar to that used in previous censuses and was devoted wholly to a record of the population by name, age, sex, origin, religion, birthplace, occupation, year of immigration, citizenship, language spoken, and literacy. There was also a special column provided to procure the enumeration of all persons domiciled in the Prairie Provinces who had enlisted for military service and were either in concentration camps in Canada or had gone overseas. ... Schedule No. II was designed to obtain the information concerning farm property, field crops, animals, and animal products. ... Schedule No. III provided for a record of domestic animals, dairy products, and eggs "not on farms." The information on each schedule was obtained from the person or persons who had immediate and personal knowledge of the facts sought for by the census. The returns were revised, edited, and compiled in the Office, and the results are presented in this volume under two main heads: Part I, Population; and Part II, Agriculture"--p. xii-xiii.
