Family Size, Canada, Provinces and Territories

Family Size, Canada, Provinces and Territories This Alberta Official Statistic compares the family size of Canadian Census families in all provinces and territories for the 2011 Census year. A census family refers to a married couple (with or without children of either and/or both spouses), a common-law couple (with or without children of either and/or both partners) or a lone parent of any marital status, with at least one child. A couple may be of opposite sex or same sex. A couple family with children may be further classified as either an intact family in which all children are the biological and/or adopted children of both married spouses or of both common-law partners or a stepfamily with at least one biological or adopted child of only one married spouse or common-law partner and whose birth or adoption preceded the current relationship. Stepfamilies, in turn may be classified as simple or complex. A simple stepfamily is a couple family in which all children are biological or adopted children of one, and only one, married spouse or common-law partner whose birth or adoption preceded the current relationship. A complex stepfamily is a couple family which contains at least one biological or adopted child whose birth or adoption preceded the current relationship. 2024-03-13 Government of Alberta osi.support@gov.ab.ca Arts, Music, LiteratureSociety and CultureFamily Sizeofficial statistic CSVCSV https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/f3e64cdf-2a34-4260-ad22-65201c4f3f28/resource/11529dbd-b4fb-4c8e-9983-0a274e3c003f/download/stcfamilysizecsvv2.02012-09-19.csv Alberta Official Statistic VisualizationPDF https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/f3e64cdf-2a34-4260-ad22-65201c4f3f28/resource/e567492a-2f05-45b8-9b7b-de81a7198b27/download/06092015familysizeonepage.pdf Original metadata (https://open.alberta.ca/opendata)HTML https://open.alberta.ca/opendata/f3e64cdf-2a34-4260-ad22-65201c4f3f28
