NOTE: The Winnipeg's Neighborhood Profiles are based on Non-Institutional Population and 20% sampling as provided by Statistics Canada. This means the data does not include people living in hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, etc. As well, one in five dwellings were surveyed and the results were then multiplied by five to arrive at representative data for the whole community.
Only the "Total Population" data is based on the results of surveying all of the dwellings and including all of the population, both non-institutional and institutional.
