Method of Gathering Information 

The 2017 Census went online in Raymond for the first time. Census takers delivered door hangers with Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) unique to each address, and residents were invited to complete the census online. In total, 53% of our addresses were completed online. 

After the initial two-week online response period, four (4) enumerators worked diligently to complete the gathering of information from residents who did not complete online. Enumerating was complete on June 30, 2017 (as mandated by the provincial government). 

Legislative Services is very pleased with the results of the methods used to compile the following data and are happy to present the following information. 

Data Discrepancy 

This year the census was transitioned to an online reporting system. Data discrepancy seen this year is in part due to this change in methodology. This will be the new methodology used going forward and 2017 numbers will be established as the new benchmark.
