Statistics Canada – Aboriginal Youth Data

Stats Can

The Statistics Canada (Stats Can) website is useful for anyone gathering statistical data for their research project.  Although this data was generated in 2011 from the National Household Survey, it is still relevant and accurate (as we all know Stats Can generates quality data).  This data is separated into three categories, Aboriginal (First Nations people), Metis, as well as Inuit (which would be useful for narrowing your research).  Interestingly, Stats Can indicates that the information compiled is incomplete as some groups did not participate in this survey or the survey was incomplete due to natural disasters such as forest fires.  So while the information gathered is quality data, it may not reveal the entire aboriginal community experience in Canada.
