Contextual Data

CCRI's on-line contextual database contains approximately 16,000 records on the organization, execution, and reception of censuses across Canada from 1911 to 1951. Nearly 170 newspapers as well as Canadian parliamentary debates and some provincial debates were systematically searched during the months preceding and following each census. Contextual data represent exceptionally rich material for understanding the major issues surrounding contemporary censuses.
