Codes and Frequencies
METHYNO describes the ethnicity of the person's mother. The codes are identical to the codes for ORIGIN, which is available in the 1871-1911 Canadian censuses, the 1900 and 1910 Norwegian censuses, and the 1880-1910 Swedish censuses.
In Norway information about ethnicity in the censuses is only included in the most ethnic parts of Norway, mainly the three nethermost provinces: Nordland, Troms and Finnmark.
