Detailed information for 2004 (Demonstration survey)
The purpose of this survey is to evaluate the feasibility of for an on-going, comprehensive program of Aboriginal statistics that would meet the information needs of Aboriginal groups, governments and other stakeholders.
Data release - The data were never published.
Statistics Canada was asked by the federal government in 2003 to develop a "blueprint" for an on-going, comprehensive program of Aboriginal statistics that would meet the information needs of Aboriginal groups, governments and other stakeholders. This blueprint has come to be known as the Aboriginal Data Initiative (ADI). The funding for this two year feasibility study will end in March 2005, when Statistics Canada is required to report to Cabinet on its findings.
There are three parts to the ADI, one of which is the data development part. A pilot survey, the Survey of People Living on Reserve (SPLOR) has been developed as part of a broader assessment of improving the availability and quality of data from household surveys.
