Notes: The figures are for December 31 of each year and include all individuals registered in the Indian Registration System (IRS) to a First Nation located in Saskatchewan. The IRS is maintained by Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) with the support of Indian Registry Administrators hired by each First Nation.
Limitations: Some births and deaths are reported late or not at all, and may limit the accuracy of the unadjusted data presented. As the place of residence field on the Indian Registration System is not regularly updated, the residency numbers represents a snapshot in time on whether an individual lives on or off reserve. This may not be a true reflection of the proportion of FN individuals living on-reserve due to high mobility trends associated with FN. As growth rates can fluctuate from year to year, using a 5-year trend is recommended for comparative or practical purposes.
