In the original publication, it was stated (top of section 3) that ‘children of same sex parents are those who respond affirmative to the question: “Are you a child of a male (female) same-sex married or common law couple?”’. Instead it should state “children of same sex parents were identified by a Statistics Canada created variable “RELATIONSHIP TO PERSON 1” which included “CHILD OF A MALE (FEMALE) SAME-SEX MARRIED OR COMMON LAW COUPLE” among the possible categories for that variable.”
