Follow us on Twitter @the_ccsd --> October Census release
Statistics Canada has just released data on Aboriginal peoples, immigration and ethnocultural diversity, and housing from the 2016 Census program.

The Daily published three bulletins summarizing key results from the 2016 Census. Among the findings are: a growing Aboriginal population in metropolitan areas; a majority of immigrants (60.3%) admitted under the economic category; and a lower rate of millennial home ownership.

Data Tables Check the Data Tables page to see data from new releases. On Novermber 29, StatCan will spotlight education, labour, journey to work, language of work, mobility and migration.
The Census Profiles have been updated with Housing, Aboriginal and Immigration & Ethnocultural Diversity data. Average income data has also been introduced to the Profiles, where previously only median income was provided. Profile data is available to download at all standard geographies here.

The Community Data Program team will make links available from our website to STC’s website for the free standard releases, while special orders – non-standard geographies and custom cross-tabs – will be ordered by the CDP and posted to our website as they are acquired.

For the full release schedule, click here: Census Program Release Schedule.

Aboriginal peoples in Canada
 
The 2016 Census reaffirmed past trends in the Aboriginal population, that they are both young and age and growing in number. In 2016, there were 1,673,785 Aboriginal people in Canada, accounting for 4.9% of the total population, a 1.1% increase from 2006. Since 2006, the Aboriginal population has grown by 42.5%, more than four times the growth rate of non-Aboriginals. First Nations population is growing both on and off the reserve, though more than half live in western provinces. Additionally, the Aboriginal population living in metropolitan areas continues to grow.

The Census dictionary provides definitions for Aboriginal identity, Registered or Treaty Indian status, and Membership in a First Nation or Indian band. In addition, there are three Census in Brief articles: Immigration and ethnocultural diversity

On Census day 2016, 21.9% of the population included landed immigrants or permanent residents, close to the country’s 1921 high. Recent immigrants account for 3.5% of the population. For the first time, Africa ranks second as source continent of recent immigrants, with a majority of newcomers (61.8%) born in Asia. Over half of all immigrants still come to Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.

Additional analytical products include: Housing in Canada
 
The Census release data describes key housing indicators, including rate of home ownership, share of households living in condominiums, and share of households living in shelter not considered affordable. Overall, the rate of home ownership remains relatively stable since 2006, though millennials have a lower homeownership rate than baby boomers did at the age of 30. This infographic looks at condominiums, which are on the rise in Canada.

Data Products Upcoming data product: Aboriginal Population Profile (early 2018)

Accompanying reference materials Geographic Resources
The software GeoSuite has been released with 2016 Census data. This is a useful tool for exploring the links between Census standard geographies and finding basic information and data on those areas.

GeoSearch is an interactive mapping application that makes it easy to find geographic areas in Canada for which census data are available. To find a specific place of interest, users can click and zoom in on a map of Canada or they can search by place name or postal code. Links to data products, analytical products and maps that are available for the selected area are listed below the map.

Additionally, you can view thematic maps showing 2011-2016 population change by Census Division, Census Subdivision and Census Tract or use the updated Focus on Geography series, which presents data highlights for each of the major releases of the 2016 Census through text, tables maps and figures. 

Disability Screening Questions

Disability Screening Question data are now available for order from Statistics Canada. Statistics Canada introduced new Disability Screening questions in the 2016 Census, splitting disabilities by type.

The CDP is submitting an order cutting the data by age group, sex, disability type and how often respondents are affected by their disability. The data will be ordered at the Census Tract, Census Division and Census Subdivision levels. This order will be used to assess the level of suppression to which the data are subjected and the suitability of these data for cross-tabulation with other variables in future orders.

Getting to know Canada's nonprofit sector: why we need better data

CCSD is involved in a working group on Sector-Wide Data. This group aims to improve the availability and accessibility of data in the charitable and nonprofit sector (meet the working group).

The working group’s mandate is to:

  1. Map out currently available federal data resources for the charitable and nonprofit sector and identify data gaps
  2. Develop policy recommendations on what the federal government can do to address the gaps in data

The Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (CCVO) is an organization that promotes and strengthens the nonprofit and voluntary sector by developing and sharing resources and knowledge, building connections, leading collaborative work, and giving voice to critical issues affecting the sector. 
 

Review of existing quality of life/wellbeing indicators frameworks in use in Canada

The Government of Canada initiative on Measuring Poverty Reduction wants to work together to reduce poverty in Canada. In support of this, the CDP team has prepared an indicator review document!

Introduction:

The incorporation of indicators of social impacts into composite social indices has been the subject of considerable effort in North America since the late 1960s. Over the past decade, literally hundreds of indices have been developed to measure social change at international, national, and local scales by governments, institutes, non-profit organizations, and others. Most indices are not linked to natural resource or land use, but some include environmental variables.

The following compendium presents short profiles of two dozen indicator-based social development indicator models currently in use in Canada. Each profile includes a summary description, illustrates the indicators employed, identifies data sources and provides a link to the initiative. The compendium also includes a review of measures of poverty by province.

Follow us on Twitter @the_ccsd --> September Census release
Statistics Canada has just released Income data from the 2016 Census program.

The Daily contains key results from the 2016 Census, such as a the median total income of Canadians is $70,336 in 2015. For persons aged 25 to 54 years, the median employment income in 2015 is $43,346. However, growth was not distributed evenly across Canada - median income growth was highest in Nunavut and Saskatchewan (resource-based provinces) while median income growth was slowest in Ontario and Quebec. 

Here are some articles from Statistics Canada: The Community Data Program team will make links available from our website to STC’s website for the free standard releases, while special orders – non-standard geographies and custom cross-tabs – will be ordered by the CDP and posted to our website as they are acquired.

For the full release schedule, click here: Census Program Release Schedule
 
Income data products The Census Profiles have also been updated with income data, providing a look at income trends down to the Census Tract and Dissemination Area level.
 
Accompanying reference materials

Geographic Resources
The software GeoSuite has been released with 2016 Census data. This is a useful tool for exploring the links between Census standard geographies and finding basic information and data on those areas.

GeoSearch is an interactive mapping application that makes it easy to find geographic areas in Canada for which census data are available. To find a specific place of interest, users can click and zoom in on a map of Canada or they can search by place name or postal code. Links to data products, analytical products and maps that are available for the selected area are listed below the map.

Additionally, you can view thematic maps showing 2011-2016 population change by Census Division, Census Subdivision and Census Tract or use the updated Focus on Geography series, which presents data highlights for each of the major releases of the 2016 Census through text, tables maps and figures. 

Statistics Canada Infographics

 

"This chart shows key results from the 2016 Census. In 2015, Canada's median household income was $70,336. The Northwest Territories had the highest median household income, while the Maritime Provinces and Quebec had the lowest." 
Source: Income in Canada, 2016 Census of Population

 

"This chart shows the real growth in median household total income for provinces, territories and metropolitan areas in Canada between 2005 and 2015. The horizontal axis measures the growth rate from -30% to +50%.

There is a vertical red line at 10.8% on the horizontal axis, representing the Canadian median household income growth rate.

The vertical axis consists of 13 rows, one for each province and territory, starting with Newfoundland and Labrador at the top of the chart, and ending with Nunavut as the bottom row.

On each row, there is a single red dot that provides the average change in median household total income for the province or region. There are also other circles on each row, and the centre point of each circle indicates the change in median income for a metropolitan area—specifically, a census metropolitan area (CMA) or a census agglomeration (CA). The size of each circle is proportional to the population of the CMA or CA, so larger CMAs and CAs show up as larger circles. Finally, the colour of the circle corresponds to the region (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Prairies, and B.C. and North).

Overall, the chart conveys that below-average median income growth occurred in Ontario and all provinces east of Ontario, with the exception of Newfoundland and Labrador. Median income growth well above the average occurred in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. British Columbia shows median income growth slightly above the national average. For all provinces and territories, the CMAs and CAs tend to follow the provincial pattern."

"This chart shows the change in low-income incidence for Canadians of different ages between 2005 and 2015.

The horizontal axis marks the different ages, starting from age 0, up to age 95 and older.

The vertical axis shows the incidence of low income—that is, the proportion of Canadians who had low income. It varies between 0% and 25%. A result of 0% means no one had low income, while 25% means one-quarter of the population had low income.

There is a horizontal line on the chart labelled "Canada: 14.2." This is the incidence of low income in 2015 for Canada overall. It means the proportion of Canadians with low income was 14.2% in 2015.

Along the horizontal axis at each age value, there are two vertical bars in the chart. The first represents the incidence of low income in 2005 for that age, while the second bar indicates the incidence of low income in 2015 for the same age.

The chart shows that, relative to persons aged 25 to 55, the incidence of low income was higher for young children, youth, pre-retirees, and seniors aged 80 and older, in both 2005 and 2015. However, during the decade, the incidence declined for children aged 5 and younger, and rose for Canadians aged 65 and older."

Follow us on Twitter @the_ccsd --> September Census release
Statistics Canada has just released Income data from the 2016 Census program.

The Daily contains key results from the 2016 Census, such as a the median total income of Canadians is $70,336 in 2015, a 9.2% growth from 2014! For persons aged 25 to 54 years, the median employment income in 2015 is $43,346. However, growth was not distributed evenly across Canada - median income growth was highest in Nunavut and Saskatchewan (resource-based provinces) while median income growth was slowest in Ontario and Quebec. 

Here are some articles from Statistics Canada: The Community Data Program team will make links available from our website to STC’s website for the free standard releases, while special orders – non-standard geographies and custom cross-tabs – will be ordered by the CDP and posted to our website as they are acquired.

This chart shows key results from the 2016 Census. In 2015, Canada's median household income was $70,336. The Northwest Territories had the highest median household income, while the Maritime Provinces and Quebec had the lowest.


This chart shows the real growth in median household total income for provinces, territories and metropolitan areas in Canada between 2005 and 2015. The horizontal axis measures the growth rate from -30% to +50%.

There is a vertical red line at 10.8% on the horizontal axis, representing the Canadian median household income growth rate.

The vertical axis consists of 13 rows, one for each province and territory, starting with Newfoundland and Labrador at the top of the chart, and ending with Nunavut as the bottom row.

On each row, there is a single red dot that provides the average change in median household total income for the province or region. There are also other circles on each row, and the centre point of each circle indicates the change in median income for a metropolitan area—specifically, a census metropolitan area (CMA) or a census agglomeration (CA). The size of each circle is proportional to the population of the CMA or CA, so larger CMAs and CAs show up as larger circles. Finally, the colour of the circle corresponds to the region (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Prairies, and B.C. and North).

Overall, the chart conveys that below-average median income growth occurred in Ontario and all provinces east of Ontario, with the exception of Newfoundland and Labrador. Median income growth well above the average occurred in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. British Columbia shows median income growth slightly above the national average. For all provinces and territories, the CMAs and CAs tend to follow the provincial pattern.


This chart shows the change in low-income incidence for Canadians of different ages between 2005 and 2015.

The horizontal axis marks the different ages, starting from age 0, up to age 95 and older.

The vertical axis shows the incidence of low income—that is, the proportion of Canadians who had low income. It varies between 0% and 25%. A result of 0% means no one had low income, while 25% means one-quarter of the population had low income.

There is a horizontal line on the chart labelled "Canada: 14.2." This is the incidence of low income in 2015 for Canada overall. It means the proportion of Canadians with low income was 14.2% in 2015.

Along the horizontal axis at each age value, there are two vertical bars in the chart. The first represents the incidence of low income in 2005 for that age, while the second bar indicates the incidence of low income in 2015 for the same age.

The chart shows that, relative to persons aged 25 to 55, the incidence of low income was higher for young children, youth, pre-retirees, and seniors aged 80 and older, in both 2005 and 2015. However, during the decade, the incidence declined for children aged 5 and younger, and rose for Canadians aged 65 and older.
