2011 Census: Marriage & Families Data Visualizations

What is a Census Family?

A married or common law couple (same sex included) and their children, if any, of either or both partners. Lone parents living with at least one child and children living with grandparents, with no parents present, are also census families. Children may be by birth, marriage or adoption as long as they live in the same dwelling.
