Table 3. Canada: Ethnic Rural Residents, 1931
Other rural residents identified only by religious group in 1931 were Mennonites (88,327), Mormons (22,041) and Doukhobors (14,978).
These totals include only rural inhabitants, other than Aboriginal Canadians. Some groups, such as the Italians, Greek and Chinese, lived predominantly in urban centres.
