Census Undercount Table

The census undercount (also known as census undercoverage) refers to the number of Canadian residents not recorded in the Statistics Canada census. In each census, despite census officials working hard to count the entire population on Census Day, some Canadian residents are missed and some are counted more than once. Statistics Canada adjusts official population estimates to include net undercoverage estimates (persons missed minus persons counted more than once).

What is the Census Undercount?

To learn how to calculate total population with census undercount, please read the Guide to Calculating Total Population with Census Undercount (PDF 34KB, 1 page).

For more information on why the undercount exists and how it is determined, please consult the Census Undercount FAQ.
