Entering sources in FTM 2011

Posted: 13 May 2013 1:30PM GMT
Classification: Census
I am finally trying to clean up my source citations, and despite searches on these fora, and looking through the 850-plus pages of Evidence Explained, I still have a very basic question: how to complete the source fields in FTM2011. That is, there are three fields:
"Source Title"
"Citation Detail" and
"Citation Text"

How much detail should be used for the Source Title, and what then goes in the remaining two. To use an example I found on-line (Not my own family):

STACEY, Samuel
Household of Samuel H. Stacey.
1901 Canada Census, Province of Ontario;
District of Muskoka Parry Sound, District No. 91;
Township of Armour, Sub District No. A;
Division 1, Page 7, House 66, Family 66, Lines 1-6;
National Archives of Canada, Microfilm T-06482;
Schedule No. 1, Population.
Note: Sam’s household includes his wife Fanny S.,
his sons Isaac G., James F., William G., and
daughter Fanny S.

Is there any consensus on how the census should be cited?
