Abstract

Census reports released in the spring and summer of 1978 provide data on Canadian households and family structures as of June, 1976. These enable us to check, for almost the entire Canadian population, what real change has occurred in regard to substitution of other forms in place of the conventional nuclear-family household, in accordance with the sexual and other "revolutions" that have been perceived as happening in North America since the late 1960s. Comparisons of 1971 with 1976 information show considerable continuity, but also substantial increases of small and non-couple households during this 5-year interval.
