Description for Figure 1.5

Figure 1.5 is a fictional grouping of nine census subdivisions (CSDs). They are shown as polygons and are labelled with fictional CSD identifiers (a two-digit census division code followed by a space and a three-digit CSD code).Note 1 Each CSD is outlined in a thin black line. The nine CSDs are grouped into four census consolidated subdivisions (CCSs), which are outlined in a thick grey line.

The CCS in the top left quadrant of polygons comprises three CSDs labelled "01 008," "01 009" and "01 011." Since a CCS gets its name and code from the largest CSD in its grouping, this CCS is labelled "01 008." The CCS in the top right quadrant comprises only one CSD and, therefore, shares the CSD code (01 013). The CCS in the bottom left quadrant of polygons comprises two CSDs labelled "01 005" and "01 006." This CCS is labelled "01 006." The fourth and final CCS, which is labelled "01 002," in the bottom right quadrant, comprises three CSDs labelled "01 001," "01 002" and "01 003."

A legend at the bottom left of the figure identifies the symbols that are used in the figure to represent the CCS and CSD boundaries and labels.
