All CSDS data users please note the following issues with the SAAD data received to date:
I have received word from the Small Area Administrative Data Division that an issue with the Census Division of Halton was identified late into our 2008 certification process. Currently the systems divides this CD into two parts and does not produce totals for the overall CD. For 2008, this issue may have an impact on the suppressions routines for thefollowing neighbouring CDs:.
Therefore, until this is fixed, no 2008 CD data for Halton and the 8 neighbouring CDs will be released to clients. Data for all other CDs and provincial totals (including Ontario) are not affected by this issue.
A similar issue has been identified for 2007. In the case of the 2007 data, we will create totals for each of the two Census Divisions of Halton while making sure that suppressions for 2007 remains unchanged. We expect to have this fixed within a month.
As a past purchaser of 2007 SAAD data, we will be sending you the revised 2007 data once they are available.
We thank you for your understanding.
Could you please communicate this information to your members who have access to the SAAD data?
Please let me know if you have any questions.
