North and South - Variant of SGC 2016
Status: This standard was replaced by the 'Variant of Standard Geographical Classification (SGC) 2021 for North and South' as of September 7, 2021.
This classification variant provides a definition of the North and South of Canada. It shows the hierarchical relationship with their component census divisions (CDs) and census subdivisions (CSDs) by province and territory. This variant was originally developed for the analysis of justice statistics. It is recommended for use by other program areas at Statistics Canada should it meet their needs, but there is no requirement for it to be used outside of the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics.
