I’m trying to find median age (or data that can be used to calculate median age) by census division for Newfoundland, for the 1991 & 1996 censuses. Any suggestions?
I could not find a simple answer for you and therefore I asked the division for help. Following is their response:
There are no standard products available for 1996 and 1991 which include median age at the CD level. I have explored the possibility of using data to calculate the median age but have been advised that this is not an option, as the data that is produced has been rounded and the results would not be accurate. In order to produce median age, the person would have to be working with unrounded data and single years of age, and as you are aware we do not release unrounded data due to confidentiality
issues. The only other option available would be produce custom tabulations at a fee to the client.
