Mobility types of population, category
Mobility types refer to three types of mobility that are measured by comparing the jurisdiction(s) of certification in a trade to the province or territory of residence one and three years after certification (migrant population). When the jurisdiction of residence matches where the journeyperson certified, the jurisdiction of employment is also compared to determine whether the journey person works outside the province or territory of certification and residence (shadow population). Total mobility is the sum of these two types of mobility.
Population refers to the total membership, based on specific characteristics, of a group of people, objects or events at a given time and within a particular geographic area.
