A: VARIABLES AND VARIABLE DEFINITIONS

Variables
The 1871 and 1971 censuses provide data for six and nine ethnic origin groups, respectively, and these furnish the basis for distinguishing between ethnic endogamy and ethnic exogamy in this analysis. Similarly, data for religious denominations are used to determine religious intra- and intermarriage. These two variables are used in combination to derive an index of marital assimilation.

2. Religion: refers to the specific religious body, denomination, sect, or community of which the individual is a member or which the person adheres to or favours in both 1871 and 1971. The specific question asked in 1971 was, 'What is your religion?'
3. Nativity: refers to whether a person was born in or outside Canada, i.e.,
