Canadian Census of Population and the Mandatory Long Form

ISI is pleased to note the decision of the new Canadian government to reinstate the mandatory long form for the 2016 Canadian Census, thereby restoring data quality for small population data. This decision follows on from the controversial decision in 2010 to make the form voluntary. ISI Declaration on Professional Ethics and the UN Fundamental Principles both stress the need for professional judgements on issues of methodology.
