== Municipal census populations ==
[[Image:Information.svg|25px|alt=Information icon]] Hello, I'm [[User:Hwy43|Hwy43]]. I noticed that you made a change to an article, [[:, Alberta|]], involving substitution of the latest federal census ([[:Statistics Canada]]) population with a more recent municipal census population. It’s since been removed per [[:WP:CANPOP]], which states “the population figure from the last official Statistics Canada census is the primary and definitive source for population data in articles.” This allows for consistent comparison among all municipalities and communities across Canada.<p>Do note however that the more recent municipal census population is already mentioned in the [[:, Alberta#Demographics|Demographics]] section per [[:WP:CANPOP]], which further states “properly sourced intercensal population updates from … a formal municipal census such as those in Alberta, may be provided in ''addition'' to the 2011 census data.”<p>If you need guidance on including population figures on Canadian articles, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on [[User_talk:Hwy43|my talk page]]. Thank you. ~~~~
