Labrador and the Census

Labrador and the Census is a free, online digital resource providing access to government census data for Labrador, going back to 1857. The data has been compiled, standardized, quality-checked, and structured in a user-friendly workbook format for independent use by communities, researchers, governments, and individuals interested in the demographic history of Labrador or its sub-regions or communities.

The dataset is designed to be self-explanatory, but an accompanying 40-page report is also available, containing a prose introduction, sample charts showcasing Labrador population trends, pull-out maps of the region’s historical communities and sub-regions, and a guide to the structure and uses of the dataset. 

Copies are available from the Labrador Institute for $10.

Labrador and the Census is the culmination of a Labrador Institute Library research project led by Morgon Mills. Questions and feedback are most welcome!
